Julian’s 16th Birthday Lemonade Stand

Julian’s 16th Birthday Lemonade Stand

My son Julian Fraga was 8 years old when he passed away from Leukemia, just over 7 years ago.

Julian would be turning 16 years old this April 16.

Julian was diagnosed with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) at the age of 6 in Kindergarten. He was treated in Miami and Houston for a little over 2 years. During his time in school, his teachers decided to hold the first-ever lemonade stand at school in order to teach the other children what Julian was going through. Julian was so happy and excited that his entire school rallied behind him and showed him so much support. We have continued the lemonade stands in his memory ever since in and off school campus.

Instead of planning his birthdays, every April I hold a lemonade stand to raise money for a Foundation to help find a cure for pediatric cancer.

This year we are doing something a little bit differently by adding an online toy drive to our lemonade stand. Our toy drive is for Nicklaus Hospital in Miami. The Pediatric Oncology ward is in need of specific arts/crafts for their teen patients. If you would like to help fulfill the hospital’s needs please click on the toy drive link.

This fundraiser helps Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer! You can join me by helping me plan this event, attending my event, or making a donation right to the page. The money you donate will pay for research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Please help kids and their families by providing desperately needed hope! Thanks for your support!

If you can’t attend but wish to donate directly online: https://www.alexslemonade.org/mypage/2805397
Please have all donations delivered no later than 4/18/2022 using the address on the amazon link. If you can, please avoid bringing toys to the lemonade stand.

All donations of toys should be done via this Amazon Link.
Please stick to the items on this list as the hospital is in need of specific items at this time.

So grab some friends and family and come on out and have a cup of lemonade with us and help raise awareness for pediatric cancer.

100% of monetary donations go directly to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
