Childhood Cancer Heroes

A message from Jay and Liz Scott, Alex's Parents:

Many of you think of Alex as a hero ~ the sweet and courageous lemonade girl who inspired others to help children with cancer. Although she did not get the chance to live a long life, she showed us what it means to live a full life. Her bravery, strength, and love of life continue to inspire us every day. She is indeed our hero!

Since Alex was diagnosed in 1997, over 2 million more children worldwide have suffered because of cancer. These kids all have hopes and dreams of long lives. They have parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and cousins who cherish them. They all inspire those who know them with their bravery, strength, and love of life. They are all heroes.

Tyler was an avid hunter and fisherman. He also liked to ride snowmobiles, dirt bikes and ATVs. His friends summed up his life as "get out and ride," which perfectly fits how he lived.

Parker was a straight-A student with a passion for remote control cars and photography. He enjoyed being with his buddies when he felt good. He was one of four children and learned before he died he was going to be an uncle.

Arianna Mae was born a beautiful healthy girl! That didn't last long as Arianna always seemed to get sick. Arianna was an incredibly happy baby. Nothing held her back, which was why her behavior at the end of November 2015 was so alarming.
Raina will bestow endless amounts of love and affection on you. Her laugh is infectious. When she starts to giggle, it makes you want to giggle with her.
Summer has always been an easy going kid. She loves all things Disney and her favorite movies to watch while in the hospital are Pixar movies, especially Monsters Inc.
Thomas never let go of hope during his entire battle and our family continues to believe there is no better way to honor his memory than to continue his fight through our work to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research.
