NEVAEH'S WICKED WOOL SOCKS - SIZE 9-11

NEVAEH’S LEMONADE STAND WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS, MAKE LEMONADE. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SIX-YEAR-OLD NEVAEH DENINE OF GOULDS, ST. JOHN’S CONTINUES TO DO!

IN THE SUMMER OF 2014, NEVAEH- AT THE AGE OF FOUR- WAS BATTLING HER SECOND ROUND OF NEUROBLASTOMA WHEN SHE HAD THE HEARTWARMING IDEA TO HOLD “THE BIGGEST LEMONADE STAND EVER” AS A WAY TO GIVE BACK TO HER COMMUNITY AND THOSE WHO ASSISTED HER FAMILY IN A TIME OF NEED.

WITH THE HELP OF A DEDICATED COMMITTEE OF FRIENDS, NEVAEH’S FIRST LEMONADE STAND RAISED MORE THAN $22,000 AND ASSISTED FIVE DIFFERENT CHILDREN WITH PEDIATRIC CANCER AND THEIR FAMILIES IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR BY PROVIDING MONETARY SUPPORT.

LAST YEAR, NEVAEH’S 2ND ANNUAL LEMONADE STAND WAS MUCH BIGGER, COMPLETE WITH CARNIVAL GAMES, LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, SPECIAL CELEBRITY APPEARANCES AND MORE! HER LEMONADE STAND RAISED OVER $42,000 LAST YEAR AND HAS SO FAR ASSISTED EIGHT DIFFERENT CHILDREN WHO ARE BATTLING PEDIATRIC CANCER IN THE PROVINCE. FOR TEN MONTHS, NEVAEH WAS IN REMISSION FROM THIS DISEASE AND LIVING LIFE CANCER FREE. BUT SADLY, IN FEBRUARY OF 2016, HER CANCER RELAPSED AND SHE IS NOW BATTLING NEUROBLASTOMA FOR THE THIRD TIME. CURRENTLY, NEVAEH IS GOING THROUGH AN INTENSE ROUND OF CHEMOTHERAPY- BUT SHE NEVER LOSES THAT COURAGEOUS SMILE THAT LIGHTS UP HER FACE AND THE FACES OF THOSE AROUND HER. ON JULY 24, 2016, THE THIRD ANNUAL NEVAEH’S LEMONADE RAISED OVER $54,000 TO ASSIST ELEVEN DIFFERENT FAMILIES IN THE PROVINCE. NEVAEH’S LEMONADE STAND SOCKS ARE ALSO BEING SOLD WITH ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO MORE SICK CHILDREN WITH PEDIATRIC CANCER IN NEED IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR.

THE MAIN GOAL OF NEVAEH’S LEMONADE STAND IS TO ALLEVIATE THE FINANCIAL STRESS THAT CANCER CAN BRING BY PROVIDING MONETARY SUPPORT TO ASSIST WITH TRAVEL AND HOSPITAL COSTS, ACCOMMODATIONS, MEALS AND SO MUCH MORE.

WHAT IS NEUROBLASTOMA? NEUROBLASTOMA IS A CANCER THAT DEVELOPS FROM IMMATURE NERVE CELLS FOUND IN SEVERAL AREAS OF THE BODY. NEUROBLASTOMA MOST COMMONLY ARISES IN AND AROUND THE ADRENAL GLANDS, WHICH HAVE SIMILAR ORIGINS TO NERVE CELLS AND SIT ATOP THE KIDNEYS. HOWEVER, NEUROBLASTOMA CAN ALSO DEVELOP IN OTHER AREAS OF THE ABDOMEN AND IN THE CHEST, NECK AND NEAR THE SPINE, WHERE GROUPS OF NERVE CELLS EXIST. THIS DISEASE MOST COMMONLY AFFECTS CHILDREN AGE 5 OR YOUNGER, THOUGH IT MAY RARELY OCCUR IN OLDER CHILDREN. NEUROBLASTOMAS, WHICH REPRESENT 95% OF TUMORS IN THE SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM, REPRESENT 5% OF ALL CHILDHOOD CANCERS.
