mAss Kickers: This cancer organization originally started as an advocacy movement through a Facebook group called “Tumors Suck!” The group was created by Dr. Eric Galvez, who earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and was diagnosed with a brain tumor less than two years later. Afterwards, he went on to publish “Reversal: When a Therapist Becomes a Patient” and now helps others live a proactive life after an intimidating cancer diagnosis through the mAss Kickers Foundation and its volunteers.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand: Alexandra “Alex” Scott was diagnosed with cancer before her first birthday. At the age of 4, this amazing young girl setup a lemonade stand in her parents’ front-yard – with the goal of giving all the money raised to doctors to help them find a cure for childhood cancers. That day, she raised $2,000. Sadly, Alex passed away at the age of 8. Today, her brave work and inspiration lives on in lemonade stands and fundraising efforts across the country each year.
