NORFOLK, Va. -- This weekend, the Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters will host their annual Anthem LemonAid campaign to raise money to fight childhood cancer.

CHKD says about a thousand volunteers and community members will open lemonade stands across Hampton Roads. Every purchase of a cold glass of lemonade will support childcare cancer treatment programs at CHKD.

“Anthem LemonAid is about kids helping kids with cancer, and ensuring that CHKD can bring health, healing, and hope to all childhood cancer patients in Hampton Roads,” said Briana Jackson, Volunteer and Events Coordinator with The King’s Daughters.

Tucker Davis, an incoming third grader and cancer survivor, is hosting a lemonade stand at CHKD on Friday, July 22, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at Shore Break Pizza and Taphouse Sunday, July 24, 2022 from 11 p.m. to 6 p.m.

He knows firsthand how important quality cancer treatment can be. When Tucker was 5, he fell and hit his head. That’s when doctors at CHKD discovered Tucker had a brain tumor. After two years of surgeries and treatments, his family tells us Tucker is now healthy and cancer free.

CHKD says their doctors diagnose nearly 70 new cases of cancer in children each year.
