6-year-old cancer patient uses lemonade stand to help other kids with cancer

ROCKLIN, Calif. -- A 6-year-old California girl is making the best out of a tough situation and putting others first; so her community decided to lend a hand.

Dozens of volunteers flocked to little Taylor Hurst's backyard Thursday morning, helping transform the area into a child's paradise, according to KCRA.

Hurst, who suffers from childhood leukemia, raised more than $700 for cancer research with a lemonade stand at the beginning of September - now her community is giving back.

"The minute we met her, it was like, 'Wow this girl is something special," local officer Eric Dollar said. "We had to come back the next day because we missed her already."

When asked about the lemonade stand, Hurst's comments were innocent and childlike.

"Sometimes when babies get (cancer) treatment, they get a little bit scared, so I always ask my mom if I can help them," Taylor said.
