First, yay for this child. I hope his dad gets the treatment he needs, and that the treatment is successful, and the family doesn’t go into debt or have to forego treatment for lack of funds.

But second: I hate it when stories like this are flogged in media as “feel-good” stories. This story should make America feel ashamed, not feel good. Seriously? A working father gets cancer, and the family has to rely on charity, and a lemonade stand manned by a 6 year old? Fuck this.
