ALSF started with a four year old girl’s dedication to help kids battling cancer. Alexandra “Alex” Scott was diagnosed with cancer before her first birthday but was determined to fight her own battle while she helped others. Before Alex passed away at the age of eight she asked for help raising $1 million. Her neighborhood and the country responded and helped her achieve this goal. The Foundation, led by her parents, carries on Alex’s mission and to date has raised over $55 million for childhood cancer research.
