This weekend in June every year thousands of families across the country put together and host an Alex's Lemonade Stand to raise money to help fight childhood cancer.
Alex Scott started her lemonade stand to do the same thing, raise money to help fight the cancer that was taking over her life. Her parents kept the "stand" going in her honor. Now with the families around the country running stands, whether it is for their charitable spirit or to honor a family member fighting or having beat cancer, money is being raised along with awareness.
As for our case my nephew was born with Neuroblastoma and operated on at three months old. He is now a survior at two years old. I am grateful to be able to say that but also sad that it is being said about such a little person. He is a very vibrant, fun, lovable and loving child.
I am happy to say this year we raised more money than last, even in this tough economy. To learn more about this cause and of course Alex, check out this link & help fight cancer one cup at a time!
