Young Girl Raises $24,000 for Breast Cancer Research

by: cancercompass

At age 9, Miami Beach resident Lexi Lehrman created a foundation that in two years has helped raise $24,000 for breast cancer research. Lexi was recently featured in the Miami Herald for her continued efforts to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

Lexi, now 11, created the Love Lexi Foundation as a vehicle for her acts of loving kindness. Komen's "Friends asking Friends" program helped get her started. And for the past two birthdays, Lexi has created events to raise money for Komen. On her 10th birthday she hosted an Art for the Cure party that raised $10,000.

The Love Lexi Foundation continues to raise money for Komen by selling "Art for the Cure" posters.
