Last Friday (8/19) girls throughout Nashua set up lemonade stands to help a 14-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
Aaliyah Davis was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer earlier this month. Since then, her family and the girls of Girls Inc. of Nashua have come together to support her.
"As soon as we heard about the news about Aaliyah, we just all rallied together," said Stephanie Thorp, director of Girls Inc. (WMUR Reports)
Aaliyah has been a member of Girls Inc. for nine years. Friday's fundraiser was a lemonade sale, with all proceeds going to her family to help pay for medical expenses. Aaliyah is receiving treatment at Children's Hospital in Boston. She will go through seven months of chemotherapy, followed by two surgeries.
On Friday, API put their production on pause and led their own parade to one of the locally placed lemonade stands to do their part. If you would like join API in making a contribution to Aaliyah's fund you can visit her GoFundMe page, to help them achieve their goal of raising $10,000.
