About the Travel For Care Program

Recognizing the financial burden that families often encounter, the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Travel For Care Program offers assistance to families who face the need to travel for childhood cancer treatment. Transportation, lodging, and meal accommodations are available to eligible families who meet our criteria. Applications must be received on behalf of a social worker or another medical representative.

In 2016, we served 419 families and provided a combined 152 flights and 670 hotel nights. We also provided over $25,000 in meal assistance and over $26,000 in gas assistance.
