Join us in supporting a wonderful foundation fighting childhood cancer, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The foundation was founded by a very brave and selfless little girl named Alexandra “Alex” Scott who was diagnosed with childhood cancer shortly before her first birthday. At the age of four, Alex decided to have a lemonade stand to raise money for doctors to “help other kids, like they helped me.” At her first lemonade stand, Alex and her family raised $2,000 for her local hospital.
While bravely fighting her own battle with cancer, she continued to hold yearly lemonade stands in her front yard. Word spread about the remarkable child helping other sick children, and people from across the world started hosting their own lemonade stands and donating proceeds to the cause. In August of 2004, Alex passed away at age 8, knowing that she had helped raise over $1 million to find a cure for childhood cancer. Today, her legacy continues with the help of her family and supporters through the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
