Shawna Hashemi, a mom of two (Ty and Cole), is setting a great example for her children by teaching them how they can do their part in the fight to end childhood cancer.

They raised almost $700 this past weekend with Alex's Lemonade Stand in Manasquan and, with on-line contributions,  they are on their way to $1,000 in donations to help make childhood cancer extinct.

Shawna and her boys stood in front of the Main Scoop during the sidewalk sale and heatwave this past weekend with many friends in the community who stopped by to help pour lemonade and take orders.

All in honor of their little friend Liam Kane who lost his battle to cancer at the age of 5. Liam 'earned his wings' after an 18 month fight with Nueroblastoma.  This fundraiser is a way to keep his memory alive and provide a way for families and friends to do something to hopefully one day make this type of tragedy a thing of the past.

If you weren't in the neighborhood but would still like to contribute to the fight against childhood cancer, you can go to www.alexslemonade.org/mypage/86748 to make a donation.
