Hagerstown girl raises money selling lemonade to fight cancer

July 07, 2005

A Hagerstown girl has raised $500 for Alex's Lemonade Fund, her mother said Wednesday.

Cameron Kenworthy, 9, set up a lemonade stand during the Mile-Long Yard Sale Monday to raise money for the fund.

The fund was established in July 2000 by Alexandra Scott, who had cancer, to raise money for Connecticut Children's Medical Care.

She died in August 2004 after helping to raise $1.5 million through donations and lemonade stands.

Cameron, who was featured in a "Next Generation" story in The Herald-Mail July 1, said she wanted to help raise money because "No parent should ever have to see their child be buried because they had cancer."

Her mother, Jackie Kenworthy, said the lemonade stand raised $385. Donations from Chambersburg and Waynesboro, Pa., brought the total to $500.
