When my niece, , was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2003 we were devastated. She bravely endured over 2 years of chemotherapy and is now 7 years cancer free! Our entire family and community has gotten involved with fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, with the hopes that someday we will have a cure for Leukemia.
In August of 2007 we had our very first Lemonade for Leukemia. It was my son Cole's idea! My two kids and I sat in front of our house with a Pitcher of Lemonade and raised $200!
In August of 2008 we had our second Lemonade for Leukemia. We added a couple of raffles and some bags of popcorn to our Pitcher of Lemonade. We raised $800!!! We were floored!
In August of 2009 we had our third Lemonade for Leukemia. Even more raffles, a 50/50 and some baked goodies accompanied our even BIGGER Pitcher of Lemonade. We raised close to $2000!!!!!!!!!
In August of 2010 we had our fourth Lemonade for Leukemia and began selling tee shirts too! We raised $2,500!!!
In July of 2011 we had our fifth Lemonade for Leukemia and even won a spot on News12! Along with all the goodies and raffles, we sold hot dogs too (100 Hot Dogs donated by Wellshire Farms!!!) and raised $3,400!!!
PLEASE JOIN US THIS YEAR and HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $4,000!
