Jay Scott is Alex’s dad, Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and also a proud father to three sons, Patrick, Eddie and Joey. Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, when she was just a year old. In 2000, at 4-years-old, Alex announced she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would go on to raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Jay works alongside his wife Liz and the amazing ALSF staff, board of directors, sponsors and supporters to continue the fight against childhood cancer, one cup at a time. Jay loves basketball, distance running, dogs, making wooden bowls and hanging out with his family.
