What’s Good: 6-Year-Old Fulfills Dying Dad’s Promise With Lemonade
Watching someone deal with cancer can be hard, especially when you are there young son. One way to deal is to help with their dying wish which is what Brady Campbell did.
Brady Campbell is a 6-year-old boy from Denver, Colorado who has gone through an unfortunate time. He has had to watch his father battle colon cancer and unfortunately, his dad did not win the fight. However, Brady has just honored his dad in a special way.
Before Brady's dad passed away, Brady wanted to take his mom on a date and pay for it himself to do something nice for her, so Brady and his dad came up with a plan to set up a lemonade stand to raise money to take his mom on a date. The day after Brady's dad passed away, Brady set up his lemonade stand and it was a success!
Brady's friends and neighbors came to support him and his sign said "25 cents or best offer." Brady's mom said that about 75 people showed up which attracted the attention of a Denver police officer who also brought his fellow cops out to help. Brady raised $244 the first day and the donations did not stop there.
A neighbor decided to set up a virtual lemonade stand on GoFundMe to raise more money for cancer research. Brady and his mom plan to use some of the money for their "date" nights and the rest will be donated to the Brandon Campbell Memorial Fund at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Colontown.
