When the city’s Stapleton community heard about Brady’s lemonade stand, it became viral and has raised more than $6,000 for The Brandon Campbell Memorial Fund at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus.
Brandon Campbell lost his life to colon cancer on July 7 after a seven-month battle. He was 37.
“He was a good dad,” said Brady.
“He always wanted good to come from everything,” said Amanda. “He was the most positive person you will ever meet.”READ MORE: Catalytic Converter Theft Impacts Dozens Of Children In Arvada
Before Brandon said his goodbyes, according to the family, he and Brady came up with a really cool plan together: to have a lemonade stand.
“It was my idea and my dad’s, and I did it to raise money and to also take my mom on a date,” said Brady.
Brady’s lemonade stand drew in dozens of people, including firefighters from Denver Fire Station 39.
On Saturday afternoon, firefighters presented Brady with a T-shirt and cap and allowed Brady to hang out for a bit inside one of their fire trucks.
They also told Brady that they can have their date night at the fire station any time.MORE NEWS: Colorado Weather: The Horrible Haze Expected To Get Worse
