Local five-year-old offers lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer this Saturday

Five-year-old Morrisville resident Jeremiah Rutkowski was in the grocery store recently when he saw a little girl with no hair. Wondering why she decided to be hairless, he asked his mother, Brandy Rutkowski, about it. Brandy explained that the girl probably had cancer and that the medicine she has to take for the cancer makes her body weak and her hair fall out. When Jeremiah heard this, he wanted to help. The Rutkowskis decided to open a lemonade stand at their house on Route 20 in Morrisville this Saturday, Aug 16, in hopes that people who go to the Madison Bouckville Antique Show will stop by for a cup of lemonade and a snack of zucchini bread and/or lemon cupcake, and help Jeremiah in his quest to raise $300 for childhood cancer research.
