This April I will be running the Boston Marathon representing Team Lemon to help Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation change the lives of children with cancer! ALSF accomplishes this through funding impactful research, raising awareness and supporting families in need. The money you donate will help children fulfill their dreams and together we can help create a future free of cancer. Please help kids and their families by providing desperately needed hope! Thank you so much for all of your support!
-Every year, an estimated 300,000+ new cases of cancer affect children worldwide.
- The NIH designates less than 4% of its budget to pediatric cancer research (that's less than 4% that has to be divided among the dozens of types of pediatric cancer).
- Since 2005, ALSF has raised over $175 million that has helped fund ~1,000 pediatric caner research projects at 135 different institutions.
