She Hopes To Help Find Cure For Disease That Killed Him

LITCHFIELD -- A sister will honor her brother by hosting a lemonade stand in Litchfield Saturday and Sunday, raising money to find a cure for the disease that killed him.

Justin Bissett was 5 years old when he diagnosed with a brain stem tumor in 2006. He lost his battle in 2007 at the age of 7.

Justin’s sister Casey, along with her friends and family, will host a benefit lemonade stand over the weekend in his memory. The money raised will go towards finding a cure for childhood cancer.

The stand will be open Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Carlisle Drive.

The stand is a part of the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which was created by 4-year-old Alex Scott in 2000.

Scott wanted to hold a lemonade stand that would raise money and help find a cure for children with cancer, a disease she battled herself. Scott died from her cancer in 2004.

In its history, the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $45 million in hope of discovering a cure for childhood cancer.
