About The Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation: The Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott. In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Alex died in 2004 but the little girl left a big legacy proving how one idea can make a huge difference. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $60 million towards fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 research projects nationally.
