Research saves lives which is why we are investing in research for a brighter tomorrow. Since 2012, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) has been our national research partner. Through this partnership, we've funded more than 165,000 hours of research to accelerate the search for cures and better treatments. Inspiring bright minds in medicine, our Foundation funds cutting-edge alternative therapies and awards grants to those pursuing promising research.

We are proud to say there are children who are cancer free today because of those research dollars. One young survivor inspired our 2017 Rose Bowl float and rode in the parade along with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation researcher who had saved her life.

Northwestern Mutual also sponsors childhood cancer oncology symposiums across the country to foster collaboration across institutions, bringing together hundreds of researchers and practitioners.
