Liz Scott, co-executive director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF)

Liz Scott is the co-executive director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation(ALSF), but she is most proud of her title of “Mom” to her three sons — Patrick, Eddie, and Joey — and her daughter Alexandra “Alex” Scott. ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand initiated by Alex, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, when she was an infant. In 2000, at age four, Alex announced that she wanted to set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. Alex would go on to raise more than $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at age eight. Since then, Liz and her husband Jay have worked alongside thousands of supporters across the country to carry on Alex’s legacy of hope. In addition to serving as the co-executive director of ALSF, Liz also serves on the National Cancer Institute Pediatric Solid Tumor Steering Committee as well as the editorial advisory board of Cancer Today, a resource for cancer patients, survivors, and their family members and friends.
