The 6-year-old Gladewater, Texas, boy reportedly took in more than $10,000 in one day at a lemonade stand he set up to raise money for his sick dad.

Randy Cox was diagnosed with seminoma earlier this year, according to KLTV. That’s typically a type of testicular cancer, but in Cox’s case it’s non-testicular and tumors appeared in his chest and elsewhere in his body, colleagues say. The condition is treatable with chemotherapy.

Drew said he felt sad and wanted to help his father with medical bills.

“He is so important to me. We like to play with each other. Lots of times we like to play games," Drew told KLTV.

Randy Cox says he has medical insurance but still will have to pay thousands of dollars in medical costs out of pocket.

“You know it almost made me cry. It's nice knowing that my kids care so much for me," Randy said of his son’s business venture. (more)
