When life gave this boy lemons, he knew exactly what to do!

Andrew Emery may only be nine-years-old but he’s got the heart and passion of someone much older.

Andrew’s seven-month-old brother Dylan suffers from a rare and usually deadly neurological disorder, called Krabbe disease, leaving the family with expensive medical bills. To help offset some of the costs, the Carolina boy decided to open up a lemonade stand and even did a callout on Facebook to spread the word.

Andrew’s video was viewed over 21,000 times and attracted people from all over to his stand.

In just two short hours, he raised an incredible $6,000 for his baby brother! 

The family also has a GoFundMe page set up for Dylan, where you can donate and find out more information.
