Rise Above It (RAI) exists to help change this disturbing trend: The number of young adult cancer patients is growing at an alarming rate. Each year, nearly 70,000 adolescents and young adults, ages 15 to 39, are diagnosed with cancer. In contrast to patients both younger and older, survival rates for young adults have not improved since the early 1970s.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand
In 2000, a 4 year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott announced a seemingly simple idea -she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help “her doctors” find a cure for kids with cancer. The idea was put into action by Alex and her older brother, Patrick, when they set up the first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer” on their front lawn in July of 2000. The simple concept of “fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time” has allowed people who would not usually participate in fundraising, especially children, to organize and raise money for childhood cancer. Adults and children have been inspired by Alex’s giving spirit – since 2004 there have been over 8000 Alex’s Lemonade Stands held across the country.

Hope Street Kids
Hope Street Kids is a children’s initiative of the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This program was founded by Congresswoman Deborah Pryce and Randy Walker, in memory of their nine-year-old daughter, Caroline Pryce Walker, who lost a valiant battle against neuroblastoma on September 4, 1999. Under the auspices of one of the nations’ leading cancer research and education organizations, the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Hope Street Kids has been shaped by Caroline’s idea to continue the fight she began.
