Drink To His Health

by Seth Mela

Brayden Grozdanich is seven years old, lives in British Columbia, and has cerebral palsy. So he has to walk with a brace. But his parents recently found out about a surgery that could help him walk WITHOUT one.

The problem was, it cost $20,000, and they couldn't afford it. Plus they'd have to travel to New Jersey for it. Luckily, one of Brayden's CLASSMATES wanted to help.

Quinn Callander is also seven. And when he found out about the surgery, he told his parents he wanted to start a lemonade stand to raise money. Which is cute . . . but obviously not the best way to raise THAT kind of money.

Still, his parents told him to do it, and the entire community got involved, including the local fire department where Brayden's dad works. But Quinn's mom knew they still weren't going to raise enough just by selling lemonade.

So she started a webpage on the site YouCaring.com, and shared it on Facebook. And since then, people from all over the world have donated over $50,000.

Brayden is scheduled to have the surgery next month.
