This posting is a little different, basically just a collection of links related to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, and a young girl named Ishani that inspired me to try and raise awareness. Putting them all here in one place where I can keep it updated and refer to these links as needed. If you have some time to look through them, they might be a little sad, but they will undoubtedly be very inspirational.
First, here is Ishani's page on the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation site, in which her mom describes her battle with cancer and how they got involved with ALSF.
Here's a short People Magazine article on ALSF (Ishani mentioned)
This is a video of Ishani's journey on Facebook (not sure if it is publicly viewable?)
Article that talks about kids dealing with cancer and their parents. This quote really hit me: "when it's your child, it's not rare. It's your child."
Youtube Christmas video from Ishani and family (2010)
Video from local news of Ishani and her family and friends running a lemonade stand event
Videos from Nickelodeon special on kids with cancer (Face of Courage). Some amazing kids!
