Alex's lemonade stand raises money for childhood cancer cures

MATTHEWS, NC (WBTV) -

 13-year-old's Madelyn Tyrell and Lindsey Gatlin hosted a lemonade stand in Matthews to raise money for childhood cancer cures.

The stand was put on with help of the two girl's siblings and friends during the Alex's Lemonade Foundation's National Lemonade Day initiative.

The two girls are selling lemonade, baked goods, handmade jewelry, and loom creations.

Tyrell and Gatlin have personally known people who passed away from cancer.
 
Officials said 2014 will mark 10 years since childhood cancer fighter Alexandra "Alex" Scott challenged the nation to help her raise $1 million toward finding cures for all kids with cancer, one cup of lemonade at a time.

Now on June 6, 7, and 8th volunteers host thousands of Alex's Lemonade Stands across the country.
