Alex Scott never remembered a time she didn’t have cancer, having been diagnosed before her first birthday. She died at age eight. During her lifetime, Alex led efforts to raise over $1 million to fight childhood cancer. Her mother, Liz Scott, has continued the effort inspired by her daughter. The organization she inspired has now raised $175 million to fight cancer, about $25 million this year. As we approach the end of the run of the Your Mark on the World Show, I invited Liz to return to the show to provide an update as her inspiring story remains one of my favorites.
