The Story of Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Having a child with cancer is one of the most painful and difficult situations a family can face. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), understand the personal side of a diagnosis, the resources needed and the impact that funded research can have for better treatments and more cures. One in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. by the time they turn 20. And despite this, less than 4% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year. This is why your support is so important.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand all started with one front yard lemonade stand. When she was just four-years-old, Alex held her first childhood cancer fundraiser in her front yard and raised over $2,000. Shortly before her first birthday, Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer In August of 2004, Alex passed away at the age of eight, knowing that, with the help of others, she had raised more than $1 million to help find a cure for the disease that took her life. Alex’s family — including brothers Patrick, Eddie and Joey — and supporters around the world are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
