Young cancer survivor starts lemonade stand to raise money for cancer research

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - All Leo wants to do is help others.

"I had cancer when I was young and I've always felt like through that experience, I should raise more money," Leo Weber said. "It's always nice to contribute to the cause."

Leo had lymphoma when he was just 4-years-old and now he's made his passion his business.

"You don't remember much, but you just know that it happened and you should help," he said.

His mother, Joy, says he wanted to start his own lemonade stand in order to give back to pediatric cancer research at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

"He's extremely compassionate and loving and just kind," she said. "He has raised over $1,500 so far."

The young, yet driven cancer survivor believes the best way to help others not have to bear the battle that he once did is by giving back.
