6-year-old Brady Campbell wanted to fulfill the dying wish from his father, who lost his battle with colon cancer in July 2019.
Campbell told Fox 31 Denver that he and his dad came up with the idea of a lemonade stand to take his mom on a date because he didn't have enough money, but wanted to pay.
The lemonade stand caught the attention of a Denver police officer who called other first responders. The stand raised $244 the first day, then a GoFundMe lemonade stand brought in more than $12,000 to continue mother-son dates and for cancer research.
Brady's mother Amanda said, "It was amazing. You could just feel the warmth and energy and such a positive thing in such a tragic time for us. It really lifted our spirits and really made Brady so happy."
