When Life Gives You Lemons…Join Forces With Alex’s Lemonade Stand

The Founder: Alexandra Scott

Alexandra “Alex” Scott had cancer that was diagnosed before she was one year old, and throughout her brave battle until she passed at age eight, she and her family and friends held annual lemonade stands in their Connecticut front yard to raise money for cancer research. Her reputation spread far and wide, and soon friends, and then strangers, from around the world, started doing the same, inspired by this child who was dedicated to helping other children. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation helps support you to do the same, and join the fight to eradicate childhood cancers. In Alex’s short life, she and her friends raised over a million dollars. While June 8,9, and 10 are “National Lemonade Days” you can jump in any time that suits you and the young people around you to get involved. A friend of mine and her kids are doing their own annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand this weekend. Funds raised by the foundation have supported 66 research projects at leading hospitals and research centers across the nation. If you are looking for a way to inspire your kids, this is a tangible, actionable course to take to talk about, learn together, and make a difference for kids everywhere. It was Alex’s dream to help to make a world without any kids with cancer. Isn’t it everyone’s?
