Profits from children’s lemonade stand to help boy battle cancer

    It was only $227 worth of profits, but the efforts by an Atlantic City area group of children mean much more to the family of a 2-year-old boy battling cancer.

    The Press of Atlantic City reports a group of children managed to make a little more than $200 profit on a lemonade stand, which they then donated to the Feltwell family.

    Daniel Feltwell says his son, Danny, was diagnosed with t-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma in November. 

    According to the Press of Atlantic City, the children worked to sell the lemonade at a neighborhood stand for four days, then quickly delivered an envelope full of cash to the Feltwell’s front door.

    According to the report, t-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
