GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — On a humid afternoon, sisters Brooklyn Knight, Daisy and Serenity Childers pitched a lemonade stand in Greenwood.

The girls set a goal of selling more than $800 to fund two days of cancer research. Their motivation started shortly after being informed a relative died of cancer.

Back in 2000, Alexandra “Alex” Scott started a campaign to raise money for cancer research to find a cure for all children with cancer. Alex battled cancer and raised money until her death in 2004, at the age of 8.
