Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is on a mission to find cures for childhood cancer

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is on a mission to find cures for childhood cancer. Childhood cancer takes the lives of more kids in the US than any other disease. Despite these staggering statistics, less than four percent of the US federal budget for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancer.

The founders of ALSF know what it means to be impacted by this on a personal level, and they are on a mission to accelerate research that can end the suffering of hundreds of thousands of children worldwide.

Learn how ALSF uses AWS to process the data of millions of publicly available samples to make them available and transparent for childhood cancer researchers, increasing research efficiency—and time to a cure—exponentially. This is their story.
