$10,000 Lemonade Stand

When life hands you lemons, you're supposed to make lemonade. Six-year-old Drew Cox did just that. Drew's father, Randy Cox of Gladewater, Texas, underwent chemotherapy to treat cancer. Drew wanted to help in any way he could.
Drew said he felt sad and wanted to help his father with medical bills.

“He is so important to me. We like to play with each other. Lots of times we like to play games," Drew told a local television station.

Randy Cox says he has medical insurance but still will have to pay thousands of dollars in medical costs out of pocket.

Drew opened his stand for business outside his home on Saturday morning, charging 25 cents a cup. Word of his benevolent venture spread quickly, with some customers coming from dozens of miles away.

One person wrote a $5,000 check and by the end of the day, Drew raised more than $10,000.

The fact that we have children successfully begging for donations to cover their parents' healthcare expenses is proof that America has the best healthcare system in the world.
