Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) was started by Alexandra (Alex) Scott. Alex was diagnosed with childhood cancer as a baby, and when she was only four, she started a lemonade stand with the help of her older brother to raise money to support the doctors working to cure childhood cancer. Alex’s spirit and determination inspired countless others to open lemonade stands in support of finding a cure. By the time Alex sadly passed away at 8, ALSF had raised over $1 million, and has since gone on to raise $200 million in support of research, raising awareness, supporting families and empowering others to get involved in finding a cure for childhood cancer.
