On Saturday, Laura Dern attended the annual L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade charity event, which raised more than $500,000 for the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Laura will play Hazel Grace's mother, Frannie, in TFIOS. She is a strong supporter of Alex's Lemonade, a nonprofit organization that raises money and awareness of childhood cancer. Alex's Lemonade give most of their donations to childhood cancer research for new treatment and cures.
Laura has been an advocate for childhood cancer for a long time. She got involved with Alex's Lemonade after her son told her about the organization in the third grade. They were awestruck by the fact that it was created by 4-year-old Alex, who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
It is great that a strong advocate of childhood cancer is involved in TFIOS.
Laura shared this picture of the event on her Twitter account:
