Cedar Park Neighbors Serve Up Hope to Woman Fighting Cancer

Updated: Thursday, June 5 2014, 10:34 AM CDT
Lemonade can't cure cancer.

But it sure can help you fight it one glass, one neighbor, one stranger at a time.

It's been non-stop.  A little lemonade stand in Cedar Park is serving up whole lot more than just lemonade, popsicles and water.

It's serving up hope.  Strangers and passersby are responding.

"We've even had a 100 dollar donation," said neighbor Angel Carter.

"When we tell them what we're going to do and that it's all donations and it's all going back the family they'll pull more money out of their pockets."

She is talking about the Neat family.  Wendy Neat was just diagnosed with a rare stomach cancer. 

"And it's stage four so it's pretty serious," Carter said.

Now, as Wendy and her husband face selling their home and providing for their three children the neighborhood is rallying around them with sweet charity and love.

"I know the family has a lot of medical expenses that were sudden," Carter said. 

And with every sale Wendy and her family know they are getting a dose of good medicine and blessings that cancer can never touch.

"I know that they feel the support of the community around them and the love of the people around them and I think it's encouraging her which is important," Carter said. "We should always be looking out for our neighbors and caring for them and loving them."

So far they've raised $1000.  If you don't drive by the lemonade stand at Ranch Trails Park in Cedar Park, you can still help out the Neat family.

A Facebook page and a Go-Fund-Me site was set up to help Wendy and her family take this scary journey.  You can find a link to those pages on this website under the Big Blue Eye.
