When Scott Harris, Lucy and Ruby’s dad, suffered from glioblastoma brain cancer, his daughters, Lucy and Ruby, started a lemonade-and-cookie stand to raise money for the place they called “Daddy’s hospital,” UAB. Their little stand raised $3,000.
Scott passed away in November 2013, which made his girls want to provide even more help and hope. That’s how Lucy & Ruby’s Brainy Day, a community event, was born.
The events have raised more than $55,000 for brain cancer research and patient support services at UAB and Children’s Hospital of Alabama.
What began as a lemonade stand has turned into fundraising and fun every May.
Lucy & Ruby’s Brainy Day provides money for brain cancer research and hope for individuals and their families. Most importantly, it keeps alive the memory of two little girls’ dad.
