Community Involvement

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death among kids under 15 years of age in the U.S. This disease attacks approximately one in every 285 kids, which means that children in your community are battling cancer right now.

Childhood cancer research and family support services are dramatically and consistently underfunded. This funding gap creates an uncertain future for thousands of children and families fighting pediatric cancer today.

Our team participates and donates to Alex's Lemonade Stand and are proud to be apart of an company who truly cares about giving back.

SUPPORTING THE CAUSE IN YOUR COMMUNITY

You can help fund childhood cancer research by fundraising for our research partner Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Alex's Lemonad Stand is a national nonprofit that funds some of the most promising pediatric cancer research in our country. They also offer support programs to help kids with cancer and their families. In addition to funds raised by network and district offices, the Northwestern Mutual Foundation provides a substantial grant to ALSF each year to support our partnership.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation logoALSF began in 2005 when Liz and Jay Scott established the foundation in honor of their daughter, Alexandra "Alex" Scott, who, though struggling with terminal cancer, hosted lemonade stands in her front yard to raise money to find a cure.

From this simple yet powerful idea, the Scotts have created an amazing organization that has raised $95 million for pediatric cancer research. ALSF has funded more than 450 research projects since 2005. It works directly with physicians, scientists and nurses to identify the specific challenges they face in bringing new treatments to children with cancer.From this simple yet powerful idea, the Scotts have created an amazing organization that has raised more than $14,095,000,000 for pediatric cancer research.
