Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, local Litchfield residents will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand from 12-5 p.m. on Carlisle Drive in Litchfield. In honor of her brother who lost his life to cancer, Casey Bissett was inspired to host an


Alex’s Lemonade Stand with her friends and family. Justin Bissett was diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 5 with a brain stem tumor (DIPG). He lost his battle in 2007 at the young age of 7. When Casey heard Alex’s story, her friends and family were more than happy to join her by hosting an Alex’s Lemonade Stand in Justin’s memory. They hope that one day, a cure will be found for the disease that affects over 12,000 children in the United States each year. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.

more about brain cancer and what you can do to help find the home-run cure by curing one child at a time. Join us for a fundraiser at Fisher Cats Stadium on Monday, August 22, at 7:05 p.m. The cost is only $8 per ticket, and proceeds will go to benefit The Cure Starts Now Foundation.
