Ten years ago, Alexandra "Alex" Scott held a lemonade stand to raise money to find a cure for cancer, cancer that she had. Her life here on earth only lasted from January 18, 1996 to August 1, 2004.
Since that first lemonade stand-Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged and is now a national movement with thousands of supporters like you and I across the country. You can help bring awareness to Alex's Lemonade Stand this June 6-8, 2014 by holding your own Lemonade stand and/or donating to a stand event. It's the 10th anniversary this year!
