Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation:
Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front
yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex"
Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Alex announced that
she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find
a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first
stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national
fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across
the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex's
Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity,
has raised more than $19 million towards fulfilling Alex's dream
of finding a cure, funding over 80 research projects nationally
including those examining leukemia, brain tumors, neuroblastoma,
Wilm's tumor, lymphoma, and osteosarcoma among others. For more
