Kids from La Grange's Kensington Preschool raised over $4,000 with a lemonade stand Friday to support a fellow pre-schooler diagnosed with cancer.

LA GRANGE – With the help of parents, friends and family, six preschoolers hosted a lemonade stand to raise money for a fellow classmate, Chris Ellis, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a form of cancer that mainly affects children under the age of five. 

The kids, from La Grange's Kensington Preschool, held the lemonade stand from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 8, selling refreshments and cookies.

The group raised just $4,331 at the stand on Friday, which organizes attributed to the popularity of the event on social media. Parent Sarah Lorenzi said she was amazed by the number of people who donated.

"It wasn't just a few big donations, it was a lot of little one," Lorenzi said of raising the funds.

Anyone else who would like to donate can do so at www.giveforward.com and search the name Chris Ellis to find his personal page.
