Kindergarten students sell lemonade to fight breast cancer
Apr 1, 2011
It seems that it is never too young to start participating in the fight against breast cancer, as students from St. Andrew's Kindergarten held their yearly Lemonade Sale in support for the Komen foundation on April 1, according to WSAV News.
The school raises money in support of the fight against breast cancer as well as in memory of Terri Lank.
Lank, who was a mother of two children at St. Andrew's school, passed away in February after fighting breast cancer for 10 years.
Terri's husband, Keith, attended the lemonade sale.
“[The kids] know they are donating money to stamp out cancer. They’re small. They’re young. They know about cancer. If we can do our part to find a cure to help cure breast cancer then that’s what we’re doing, and that’s what all these children out here are doing today," Keith told the news organization.
The Susan G. Komen foundation was established by Nancy Brinker in memory of her sister who passed away from breast cancer. Women over the ages of 40 should receive yearly mammograms, according to the American Cancer Society.
