The story of Alexandra “Alex” Scott, founder of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, is simple.  Shortly before her first birthday, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.   In the year 2000, when Alex was just four years old, she told her parents that she wanted to have a lemonade stand in her front yard.   She surprised everyone when she announced her plan – to donate the money from her stand to “her hospital” to help the doctors find a cure for all kids with cancer.

Even though Alex continued to bravely battle her own cancer, she also continued to hold yearly lemonade stands to benefit childhood cancer research.   News of Alex, a sick child, helping other sick children spread far and wide.   People from all over the world were inspired by her story and decided to help Alex in her quest to find a cure by holding their own lemonade stands and donating the money to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.  In August of 2004, Alex passed away at the age of 8, knowing that, with the help of others, she had raised over $1 million to help find a cure for all kids with cancer.

Since Alex’s very first stand in 2000, over $40 million has been raised for childhood cancer research!  Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is currently funding 150 research projects in 50 leading pediatric cancer hospitals throughout the United States.
