No sour lemon for this story.
This one is as sweet as can be which is why we used it this morning
At 6:40 For “Isn’t that Nice. And I’ll tell you right now it truly is nice!!!
There’s a 7 year old in British Colombia. Brayden is his name. He has cerebral palsy and walks with a brace. But his parents were recently told he could walk without a brace with a certain type of surgery. Sounds great except that the surgery cost $20K and they can’t afford it. Plus they had to fly to New Jersey for it.
Here it comes!!!!! Quinn is one of Braydens best buddies. He is also 7. When he found out about the surgery he told his parents he wanted to set up a lemonade stand to raise the $20 grand. Mom and Dad said great. They let the community know about the lemonade and the Dads workplace which happened to be the fire department. So a good start, but certainly not enough so Mom started a webpage on the site YouCaring.com and shared it on Facebook. Guess what they’ve raised so far? $50 thousand . Thank goodness it was more than the 35K the guy making the potato salad raised (lol) Hope you heard about that silly story this morning. Anyway…Brayden and his Mom and Dad are flying to New Jersey next month so he can have the surgery.
