Wish Wednesday: Selling Lemonade for Wish Kids

LUBBOCK, TX - A few weeks ago thousands of kids went into the lemonade business. You probably saw lemonade stands all across town.

Some special entrepreneurs spent the day working for Make-A-Wish.

"We wanted to help a good cause like Make-A-Wish. We want to help kids get better," said Olivia Mudd, a business woman.

Stands all across town poured up lemonade for a good cause. We found two groups of kids who were helping make wishes come true.

"We're just selling some lemonade and donating the profits to Make-A-Wish. We just think it's a really strong foundation and it's really important," said Nehemiah Saldana, businessman.

Friends were supporting each other and honoring Cameron Weddle, a wish kid himself.

"Cameron was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was three. He went through three and a half years of chemo at UMC," said Misty Weddle, Cameron's mom.

So where did he get to go? "I went to Disney World for a week," said Cameron.

Cameron and his family went when he was eight, it's a trip he will never forget.

"It was amazing, they treat those children like they are royalty. All the times we had to wait in the hospital, the waiting room. Just a relief to be able to go to the parks, go to the front of the line every time, never had to wait on anything," said Misty.

Now Cameron and his friends are making money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"It's real exciting. We get to have fun out here, make people come to the stand, it's a good thing to do," said Kaden Gentry, businessman.
