(August 4, 2010) - Lemonade stands will be selling refreshing
drinks this Saturday, August 7, as a fundraiser benefiting Mom's
Lemonade Fund. The proceeds from the lemonade stands will provide
support for patients coping with ovarian cancer at the Curtis and
Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical
Lemonade stands will be set up around Savannah at various
locations including, 602 East 44th Street, 1200 50th Street,
Washington Avenue, Baldwin Park, 321 Jefferson Street, 7523 LaRoche
Avenue in Isle of Hope, Southbridge Boulevard, Olde Towne and other

In August 2009, the families of Ellen Hogan and Mary Anne Mahfet
created Mom's Lemonade Fund. The mission of the fund is to raise
awareness of ovarian cancer, assist with frontline emotional and
medical needs, and to provide comfort care items for patients,
their family members, and caregivers battling the disease. As the
fund grows, donations may be used on a greater level to support a
broad range of needs including equipment, research, and educational
programming. To contribute to Mom's Lemonade Fund, go to the Memorial
Health Foundation Web site.
