Cincinnati youth combat cancer through cold beverages

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Two young Cincinnati girls joined the fight to end kids' cancer by hosting a lemonade stand to honor the memory of Caroline Carter on Saturday afternoon.

Five-year-old Mia and 3-year-old Frankie never met Carter, a cousin who lost her life to neuroblastoma in 2007. The girls raised funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a non-profit organization that has raised more than $60 million toward finding a cure on a national level.

The ALSF was founded in 2000, when four-year-old Alexandra "Alex" Scott, a cancer patient, announced that she wanted to help find a cure for all children with cancer through a lemonade stand.

Since Alex's start in 2000, the Foundation has turned Alex's vision into a national movement with thousands of supporters across the country.

Proceeds from Mia and Frankie's lemonade stand will help fund more than 300 research projects nationally.

To learn more information about the ALSF visit alexslemonade.org or to support Mia and Frankie's local effort to end kid's cancer, contact Leanne Colonna at 513-509-5765.
