9-year-old Andrew Emery of South Carolina decided to set up a lemonade stand over Memorial Day weekend. However, instead of pocketing the earnings, he wanted to raise money to help his parents, Matt and Melissa, pay the medical bills for his sick younger brother.
Andrew told The Index-Journal,
"I'm gonna spend it on doctor's bills and stuff, and buy him a teddy bear too. I just want to help Dylan. He's my baby brother."
Dylan - Andrew's brother - was born earlier this year and has Krabbe disease, a severe neurological condition and is currently being cared for at a Pittsburgh hospital. While Andrew's parents were in Pennsylvania, Andrew sold lemonade along the highway with help from grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends.
As well as the lemonade, Andrew sold custom t-shirts bearing Dylan's name. Andrew raised over $5,860 in just two hours.
