My Sweet Calli,
is one of 6
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
basically that means that her cancer originated
IN her spinal cord,
verses traveling there from another cancer somewhere else in the body...
Calli had a very rare and explosively aggressive brain cancer in her spinal cord
In case you were not aware, the spinal cord is considered part of the brain!
The ALSF CORD Fund
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has partnered with the CORD Foundation & joined forces to make an even bigger difference for children with spinal cord tumors!
Did you know that you can host a lemonade stand in Calli's memory?
At any time during the year, you can host a lemonade stand event at work, at your school, in your community or just choose to donate to Calli's CORD FUND Any & all monies raised, will go specifically to Calli's CORD Hero FUND!
While you cannot help Calli anymore :(
You CAN still help other children struggling with Spinal cord/Brain Cancer!
Calli really wanted to help the other kids with cancer,
she wanted her life to matter, to make a difference.
It is really simple to get started!
