Alex Scott is the 8 year old founder of Alex’s Lemonade Stand for Pediatric Cancer Research. Two days before her first birthday she was diagnosed with an aggressive childhood cancer.

At the young age of 4 she started a lemonade stand on her front lawn to raise money for doctors to find a cure for childhood cancer. She continued her stand every year until she died – at the age of 8.

But, her legacy lives on – the Lemonade Stands have become a world wide charity and they have raised millions of dollars in Alex’s name. Visit here to find out more about this great cause.

Where do you get you courage, little ones? I only hope I can be half the person you were in your short life.
