in the process of undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, when she decided that she wanted to help raise money for her hospital so she could help other kids fighting cancer. A truly selfless child, she lost her fight with cancer in 2004 at age 8 but her legacy lives on through the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).
Elijah’s storyAuntie Anne’s has partnered with ALSF to help raise funds to fight childhood cancer through a Tilt campaign. As part of the campaign, a different child hero is being highlighted each week and I have the privilege of talking about a brave young boy named Elijah.
Elijah is from Little Rock, Arkansas and was diagnosed with stage IVneuroblastoma in August 2005. in 2006 Elijah's cancer returned and he had to travel with his family over 1,200 miles to get treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Although he is receiving the help he needs, the treatment is very expensive. Thankfully there are wonderful organizations like ALSF that are available to help children like Elijah. Elijah has been happy to host his own lemonade stands through ALSF which shows what a truly remarkable boy he really is.
You can also help Elijah and other children like him who are bravely battling cancer by visiting the Auntie Anne’s and ALSF Mighty Fight Tilt campaign today and donating! Even a few dollars can greatly help this wonderful cause. Please consider a donation of any amount that you feel you are able to give!
