Alexandra Scott had cancer and passed away when she was 8 years old. She had raised over a million dollars by setting up a lemonade stand for a cancer fund for children with cancer when she had cancer herself. We think she is a hero because she was very selfless based on what she did. She also had determination, and she showed no matter how small or big you are, if you set your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
