Money will help pay for Drew Cox's father's cancer treatments
Drew Cox sold his cups of lemonade for 25 cents each. He raised more than $10,000 in just one day. Yes, you read that correctly: over $10K. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting the story out to the public, isn't it? When people find out what others need, they step up to help. And that is exactly what happened on a recent, beautiful East Texas day.
Drew Cox's father, Randy Cox, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer several months ago. Cancer treatments are incredibly expensive -- even with insurance. Drew knew he wanted to help in some way, doing whatever he could. And what he could do, is make and sell some ice-cold lemonade in his tiny hometown of Gladewater, Texas.
Within a few hours, the lines began to form, as hundreds of residents paid Drew 25 cents for a cup of his lemonade. The crowd continued to grow as word of this young boy's lemonade stand spread and by the end of the day, Drew's family had well over $10,000 to put toward Randy Cox's medical expenses. One donor stepped up big, donating $5,000 to the cause.
Obviously, the family still has expenses, so if you'd like to learn more and possibly donate, you can visit Randy Cox's "Give Forward" page for information.
