A tug on the heartstrings here, a cup of lemonade there, and before you know it, a six-year-old sold $10,000 worth of lemonade at his stand. The little boy was trying to raise money to help his dad cope with medical bills for treating a rare form of cancer. Ready? All together now: Aww!
His dad is undergoing chemo therapy treatment, and has insurance, but the family is still facing out-of-pocket costs for medical bills.
“I think he understands that his daddy is sick and that it takes a lot, not just money, to take care of things,” says his mom.
“I just made this because I wanted to help him pay his bills,” Drew said.
Cars were parked up and down the street all day, with one generous customer reportedly handing over a $5,000 check.
That’s a lot of lemonade, and as Drew puts it: “It’s lots of work to do.”
