Alex’s Lemonade Benefit, Wynnewood, PA

June 11th, 2010

6-11-10Heading south to Philadelphia for the 10th annual Alex’s Lemonade benefit for childhood cancer research, gave me the time to reflect on a question which has been on my mind since November. Why have I had an unusual amount of childhood cancer patients and their parents enter my life since August 2009? There has to be something to it, what it is, I do not know. Time will tell.
The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, ALSF for short, has become a major supporter of cancer research in children for several years. Run by a talented, dedicated staff, this charity should be on every donor’s short list. What started as one stand in Alex Scott’s front yard has grown into a thirty million dollar charity with lemonade stands across the US. Many research facilities are being given much needed revenue to fund cutting-edge experiments because of this foundation. A cure always seems to be right around the corner, because of ALSF, maybe it is.
