I’m so grateful to my sister Valerie whose birthday is today and she has invited me to be with her families and lovely friends to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand event. Her daughters, my nieces have raised money with their own lemonade stands.
I don’t support sugary drinks normally, in fact my poor daughter sells lemons from our lemon tree because I haven’t let her have one. But today I support Alex, a cancer victim who started a lemonade stand to raise money to cure cancer.
This child’s dream continues. They just hit their $100 million dollar mark! This child’s parents are speaking now and as I hold back my own tears thinking about losing a child I am in awe of their desire to continue their daughter’s crusade.
Alex would have been 19 years old in her second year of college. Hug your children today. Support Alex’s Lemonade. Share, love and encourage your children today to reach for the stars and dream big. Alex did and continues to do so…
