A-7-Year-Old Alabama Girl Sells Lemonade to Help Fund Her Brain Surgeries

A 7-year-old from Alabama – faced with the daunting cost of upcoming brain surgeries – has helped her family raise more than $315,000 to help pay for the procedures.

Liza Scott was determined to alleviate some of the financial burdens off of her mother after finding out last month that she needs to have multiple surgeries to treat three rare brain malformations.

So, she put her homemade lemonade stand to use.

That stand, coupled with her online fundraiser, “Lemonade for Liza – Zest for Life w/ Brain Surgery” helped pave the way for her upcoming surgeries at Boston Children’s Hospital.

The Next Big Thing

Liza’s mother, Elizabeth Scott, told Fox News that her daughter has always tried to “lift a bit of the burden” around the house. This is the latest example of that.

When Elizabeth Scott is not running the family business, Savage’s Bakery, she is taking care of Liza and her 3-year-old brother, Finnley.

“Liza has always shown the initiative to step up and take part in helping with things around the house or at the bakery even when it’s not expected or asked,” Elizabeth Scott said.

After the 7-year-old suffered a grand mal seizure at the end of January, doctors at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham uncovered multiple cerebral malformations in her brain that need “immediate attention”

The surgeries are to help prevent Liza from having any further seizures as well as possible brain bleeds, hemorrhages or strokes, according to her fundraising page.

Liza had insisted that she help raise funds necessary to cover some of the costs and within a matter of days she set up shop inside her family’s bakery in Homewood.
