“Child Care Providers are Champions for Children”
On August 14th, Sue’s Crew Family Child Care organized a lemonade stand to raise money for Jeremias Moya and his family. Jeremias was in Sue’s child care from ages 3 to 6. He was 9 years old at the time of the lemonade stand event. Jeremias was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor in October, 2014. His tumor was a fast growing tumor. No children had ever survived this type of brain cancer.
So, Sue and her child care parents wanted to do something to help out. With the help of Lakewood police and West Metro Fire Department, the news got out throughout the community. We were able to raise over $1,400.00 for this family.
Sooner than we expected, Jeremias passed away on August 25th, just 1 ½ weeks after the lemonade stand event. This lemonade stand event started off small, grew into a very large event and touched so many people. The donations were amazing from people that we didn’t even know. I know Jeremias felt everyone’s love. We will miss him.
