#403: Curing Childhood Cancer One Lemonade Stand at a Time [Jay Scott] In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Jay Scott, father Alex Scott who, while battling her childhood cancer, raised over a million dollars by setting up a lemonade stand.

Today, the ALSF has raised millions of dollars to fund childhood cancer research and help families and children that are going through the battle right now.

Jay is going to tell us about the ALSF journey from beginning to where it is now, who they have been helping and the stories from a couple of families that have benefited from the work that Alex started many years ago.

About this episode's guest, Jay Scott and the ALSF

#403: Curing Childhood Cancer One Lemonade Stand at a Time [Jay Scott] Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) shares the vision of our founder and creator, Alexandra “Alex” Scott — a cure for all children with cancer.

When Alex, who was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her first birthday, was four, she told her parents she wanted to set up a front-yard lemonade stand. Her plan: to give the money to doctors to help them find a cure. Her first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand”, held with the help of her older brother Patrick, raised an astonishing $2,000 in one day. While bravely fighting her own cancer, Alex continued to set up lemonade stands every year. As news spread of the remarkable girl so dedicated to helping other sick children, people everywhere were inspired to start their own lemonade stands—donating the proceeds to her cause.

In 2004 when Alex passed away at the age of eight—her stand and inspiration had raised more than $1 million towards finding a cure for the disease that took her life. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation was started by her parents in 2005 to continue the work that Alex began. Our mission is simple: to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is the living embodiment of Alex’s spirit of determination and hope. Like Alex, we believe that every person can make a difference. Together, we can bring about a cure. Please join us in “making lemons into lemonade” today! Watch the video below to learn more about ALSF.
