I have my Mama’s Lemon-Aide in fact the hospital gave her two of them.The first one was given to her when she took her first chemo treatment & the second one was given to her when she took her last breath this past April 13th 10 years ago.My oldest daughter has the first one that was given to Mama & I have the second one that was given to her. Mine is in a thick plastic bag with a zipper on it in my closet because I didn’t want Lemon-Aide to get dusty or dirty just sitting out. Every now & then I take him out of the bag just to hold him & look at him with tears in my eyes. Then I put him back in the bag and back in the closet until the next time. My daughter was always very afraid of clowns. Even as an adult she hated clowns but not Lemon-Aide. He’s very special to us!!
Mrs. White’s First Period Math class looked at Lemon-Aide’s FB page today. We are studying the effects of economy in Social Studies and the Real World Problems and Mathematical means to try to solve them. Thank you, Lemon-Aide and friends for teaching such valuable life lessons in this and every society!
Mrs. White’s Second Period Social Studies Class visited the FB page today to see how something like Lemon-Aide can have a Multi-Cultural Affect on Society. How we feel, how we care for one another, makes for a healthy society. Good Job, Lemon-Aide!
A lady from East Tennessee recently called to request a Lemon-Aide for one of her friends who had just been diagnosed with cancer. She shared that she had a Lemon-Aide of her own but could not bring herself to part with it. She said “I wouldn’t take a million dollars for my Lemon-Aide”. That makes what we do worthwhile.
Ann loved Lemon-Aide so much that during her second battle with cancer she gave a Lemon-Aide to each of the patients taking chemotherapy at the cancer center during the time she was taking her treatments. Her doctor later commented that that group of people had the most positive attitude and were less anxious than any group of patients they had treated.
Lesa stated that she took Lemon-Aide with her to all of her treatments and set him in the window to remind her that her friends were thinking of her. She said “I don’t know how you explain why that cheerful little face means a lot, but it does. Lemon-Aide looks at you with a tear and a smile at the same time, and that’s kind of how you feel when you are dealing with cancer”.
A lady called from Pennsylvania to share that she had given Lemon-Aide to her best friend who was very sick and not responding well to treatments.She wanted to share that her friend kept Lemon-Aide with her all of the time and that one of her final requests was that she be buried with her Lemon-Aide. She said “today I am just calling to share with you Lemon-Aide has traded his cape for his angel wings”.
Someone called to share that Lemon-Aide had been a blessing to her brother who was in prison. Her family would visit him often because he had liver cancer. Due to prison rules her brother was not allowed to keep Lemon-Aide with him. Each time they visited they would take Lemon-Aide…Her brother loved him because the little clown always put a smile on his face.
A man shared that he has a friend who was diagnosed with cancer. He stated that he did not know what to say or do. He gave her a Lemon-Aide clown and book and shared that when you don’t know what to say or do Lemon-Aide and his book can say it for you. He really is here for you.
After expenses are paid, Sharon and her husband plan to donate all the money raised from the sale of the Lemon-Aide clowns and other products to fight cancer.
