Boy's Lemonade Stand Raises $10,000 in One Day

| No Comments

A 6-year-old boy from Gladewater, Texas, raised over $10,000 on Saturday when he set up a lemonade stand to help fund his father's hospital bills.

Drew Cox charged 25 cents per cup as he attracted customers in from within 70 miles away, reports the New York Daily News.

According to MSNBC, Drew's father, Randy Cox, suffers from seminoma, a type of testicular cancer. But in Randy's case, the tumors have appeared in his chest and other unusual spots.

Among the donations to Randy Cox's cancer fun was a $5,000 check. A friend of his, Tameka Royal, set up an internet account to generate donations to the family, which includes Cox's wife and two other boys in addition to Drew.
