It only took 2 hours for a 9 year old in South Carolina to sell $6,000 worth of lemonade and t-shirts to raise money for his little brother’s medical expenses. Andrew Emery wanted to help his parents pay for medical bills for his little brother Dylan, who has Krabbe disease. It’s a rare and often lethal neurological condition. So nine-year-old Andrew set-up a lemonade stand at a used truck dealership in Greenwood, South Carolina on Saturday and made nearly $6,000. Along with helping to pay the medical bills, Andy says he wants to buy his little brother a teddy bear.
