This particular stand in Cape Girardeau was for Wyatt Glastetter of Jackson that lost a long, courageous battle with neuroblastoma, pediatric sympathetic nervous system cancer.

The founder of Alex's Lemonade Stand is Alexandra "Alex" Scott which held her first lemonade stand, raising over $2,000 when she was just four-years-old.

By the time of her death in 2004, Alex raised one million dollars and inspired a legacy of hope and cures for childhood cancer.

Since 2005, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) has funded over 800 research projects at more than 135 hospitals working towards putting an end to childhood cancer.
