Alexandra Scott (1996-2004) – Advocate for Pediatric Cancer Research
Alexandra “Alex” Scott was an American cancer patient who, at the age of four (4), started a lemonade stand to raise money for childhood-cancer research. She died of neuroblastoma at the age of eight (8). Since her death, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has collected more than $50 million to fight pediatric cancers. Each year “Lemonade Days” occurs where people all over the nation set up lemonade stands to raise money for Alex’s foundation.
We honor Ms. Scott because she is clearly a Legacy Champ. If you want to be a Legacy Champ in your own special way, then contact The Mendel Law Firm, L.P., for a free initial consultation on estate planning, trust planning, and/or probate issues.
