About Alex’s Lemonade Stand:
In July 2000, in spite of her own failing health, she decided to open a lemonade stand, aided by her older brother, to raise money to help children with cancer. They held an annual “Alex’s Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer” on the family’s front lawn. Her first lemonade stand in her hometown of West Hartford, Connecticut, raised over $2,000 and turned into an annual tradition. It continued after the Scott family moved to Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, to pursue treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia while she attended Penn Wynne Elementary School. On August 1, 2004, Scott died at the age of eight.
