In 2014, then five-year-old Jude's desire was simple. He wanted to have a lemonade stand to benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Lee County. His big heart birthed a project that was a success. In person at the driveway's edge and in your living rooms with your laptops, you helped raise more than $1600 that first year to help those impacted by cancer.
Then we opened the lemonade stand again in 2015. Cora demanded equal billing. You helped raise $1428. Little sister power!
In 2016, this project yielded an impressive $2,380 check presented to the Relay for Life of Lee County .
Last year the lemonade stand resulted in a whopping $2,800 check presented to the organizers of Lee County's Relay for Life!
Jude and Cora know the impact of cancer already. Their grandfather died of lung cancer at age 46 before they were born. Their grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. They've been awesome nurses to their BRCA 1 positive mom after surgeries. Jude and Cora know other family members, friends, neighbors, and church members hurt by this disease as we're sure you do, too.
The lemonade stand is one way we are moved to act for those impacted by cancer. Thank you for helping us give to an organization with a mission to help people with cancer, their caregivers, and those individuals at risk for cancer.
Take a STAND.
