Children Who have made a Difference
How have children made difference?
She was appearing to overcome cancer, that is until her next birthday when they found out that her tumors were starting to grow again. When she was four years old she had a stem cell transplant. She told her mom 'When I get out of the hospital I want to have a lemonade stand.I want to give the money to the doctors so they can help other kids just like they helped me!¨
She had meant what she said and later that year she had raised over $2,000 that she donated to the hospital. Her and her family continued to have yearly lemonade stands. She has inspired other people to have lemonades and donate the money raised to Alexandra and her family
Sadly she died at the age of 8 knowing that she had raised over 1 million dollars for people who had the same cancer, that took her life.
