Danielle Benoit and fellow researchers will be serving lemonade and explaining their work on childhood cancer therapies this weekend on June 11th and 12th as part of a national effort organized by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

“My lab is holding its 7th annual fundraiser to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer!” Benoit said. “You can join me by attending these events in the Rochester area or by making a donation to this page. The money you donate will pay for research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Please help kids and their families by providing desperately needed hope!”

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.
