ANGOLA, Ind. (WFFT) - Grace Johnson and Emily McCrea set up Little John's Lemonade Stand every year to help kids fighting cancer.

This year they are helping help Conlei Walworth who was diagnosed with cancer in April.

"It makes me feel special because I know I have friends I can rely on," Conlei said.

The girls didn't have a goal amount, but made plenty of donations to help Conlei.

"We have a community that is absolutely out of this world. The amount of people that have surrounded us, pitched in and offered to help have been overwhelmingly incredible," Conlei’s mother Jill Walworth said.

The girls raised more than $10,000 dollars Saturday.
