In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, the MOMS Club of Culver City West will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 11am-2pm at 5389 Dobson Way (the corner of Dobson Way and Jefferson Blvd).
The MOMS Club of Culver City West chose Alex’s Lemonade Stand to be the beneficiary of their annual service project because they felt it was a worthy cause to contribute to. Service Project Coordinator Amy Kaplan is personally acquainted with a family whose son was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 3. Now, age 7, this boy has endured 4 years of treatment and is thriving.
“After seeing what this family went through, and talking to other MOMS Club members, we all wanted to do something to help,” said Amy.
The MOMS Club of Culver City West is a local chapter of MOMS Club International. It is a non-profit group of about 30 at-home moms who live in Culver City, west of Overland Blvd. In addition to play groups, meet ups and neighborhood activities, members also participate in an annual service project.
Everyone is invited to come by and get a cup of lemonade (suggested donation $1) or buy a bake sale item. All proceeds go directly to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. You can also donate directly to the MOMS Club fundraising site.
About Childhood Cancer
Childhood cancer is a general term used to describe cancer in children occurring regularly, randomly and sparing no ethnic group, socioeconomic class, or geographic region. Childhood cancer extends to over a dozen types of cancers and a countless amount of subtypes. Just a few of these cancer types include: Ewing’s sarcoma, glioma, leukemia, lymphoma, medulloblastoma, neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, retinoblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and Wilm’s tumor. In the United States, childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15. Every day, approximately 250 kids around the world die from cancer, accounting for 91,250 losing their lives to the disease every year.
