Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, when she was just a year old. In 2000, at 4-years-old, Alex announced she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would go on to raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Since then, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $150 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 800 research projects nationally.
Alex's dad Jay sits on Podcoin's advisory board and serves as Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. He is also a proud father to three sons, Patrick, Eddie and Joey. Jay works alongside his wife Liz and the amazing ALSF staff, board of directors, sponsors and supporters to continue the fight against childhood cancer, one cup at a time.
