Create a Brighter Future for Kids with Cancer
This year, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is celebrating the milestone moments that make kids, kids. From first bike rides to birthday parties, every child should have childhood moments. Unfortunately, kids with cancer can’t always experience these milestones. Many children fighting cancer have to put their childhoods on hold due to frequent doctor visits, traveling to distant hospitals, or long-lasting side effects from treatment.
You can give kids more milestone moments by funding research to discover safer, more effective treatments for all children with cancer.
In 2020, these moments feel more precious than ever. By donating to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation this holiday season, you can create the bright future our founder Alex envisioned. A future where every child can celebrate birthdays, first days of school and graduations. A future free of childhood cancer.
