Liz Scott

Co-Executive Director
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation

Liz Scott is the Co-Executive Director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), but she is most proud of her title of “Mom” to three sons, Patrick, Eddie, and Joey, and daughter Alex.

ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of Liz’s daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to run a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Since then, Liz and her husband, Jay, have worked alongside thousands of supporters across the country to carry on Alex’s legacy of hope.

To date, ALSF has raised more than $200 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, having funded over 1,000 pediatric cancer-research projects, and assisted more than 10,000 families through their national support programs.

Liz holds a BA in psychology from The University of Connecticut and honorary doctorates from Drexel University, Villanova University and Baylor School of Medicine. In addition to her work with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, she also serves on the Board of Directors for The Cancer Couch Foundation.
