Transcript for This kid's lemonade stand will melt your heart
So when we heard about this sweet boy and his amazing mom who everyone's talking about we just had to meet them. Take a look. Brandon and Amanda Campbell were best friends for 20 years and husband and wife for eight. They became a family when Amanda gave birth to beautiful baby boy Brady. Brandon was a great husband and father who loved to travel and go on adventures with his wife and son. He also taught Brady the importance of always being there and putting family first. Seven months ago, they received the devastating news no family wants to hear. Brandon had stage 4 colon cancer, he passed away on July 7th. And it was important for brave Brady to step up and take care of his mom. The 6-year-old decided to start a lemonade stand to take his mom on date. Brady raised $244 a day. About 75 people bought lemonade, including many neighborhood first responders to pitched in to help. Brady's still planning his special date and hopes to make it a weekly event. Taking care of his mom just like his dad would have wanted. Please welcome, Brandon Campbell and his mom Amanda. Just starting off, this video speaks for itself. Can you tell us a little bit about your husband Brandon? Yeah, where to start, Brandon was a wonderful man. Caring, thoughtful, funny, adventurous, always up to do something fun literally, the type of guy that took advantage of every moment of his life. Just a real inspiration. A fabulous dad to Brady. The dad that took him on epic adventures and trips all over the world. And, you know, exposed him to so many amazing things. He's just a great person, a wonderful person. And Brady, how did you come up with the idea for a lemonade stand? Because my dad and me planned it. So you two had planned this together? And why was it so important to take your mom on date? Because my dad told me to take care of my mom and I want to. Now, you had a lot of first responders and neighborhood friends that supported the lemonade stand and your mission, so what did that mean to you to see that response? To be honest, it was the day after Brandon had passed away. He fought for six months, a short time but also a very long time, and I was literally laying on my bedroom floor crying just wanting to be alone and my sister and my mom were in town, they helped Brady set up the stand and I knew it was happening. I was trying to kind of gain the courage to go out there and see it and my sister came up and said, there's firefighters and police cars and all your neighbors are out. You need to come see this. And I went out and it was just beautiful. I can't even put into words how beautiful it was, just people we care about there supporting us, the community around us, there was a rainbow in the sky. I just felt so much peace. And throughout Brandon's illness, he had said to me you'll find purpose in this, meaning in this some way and for me in that moment it hit me this is so beautiful and the legacy he left with Brady and all the lessons that he really taught all of us, it's just so apparent in that moment. It's such a beautiful story and it warms my heart that, you know, a lot of people have heard it and it's bringing a lot of positivity into the world. I know Brady is pretty young and, you know, a lot of this is very unfamiliar territory, what does it mean for you to see the resilience that he has? It's inspiring, really, he's been really strong throughout everything. It's not easy watching your father, or your husband, somebody you love suffer and go through what we went through. He's just been so strong and taken it upon himself to want to take care of me. His father instilled in him the importance of loving the people around you and taking care of your family and that's the most important thing. And Brady's grabbed on to that and has really gone with that. We're here for each other and it has made this whole thing a lot easier. Do you have any advice who may be in same position, dealing with a loss that great? Yeah, think, it's so important, as soon as Brandon was diagnosed I really wanted to get as much information as I could about colon cancer, what about what we could do so that I could best advocate for him. I took it upon myself to learn as much as I could so that you can advocate for your loved one. So important. Brady, we know it's really important to take your mom on that date, right? So what we wanted to do, we wanted to send you to one of our favorite restaurants called the lamb's club. We're going to set you up to take your mom on a date. Okay? Is that all right? The table -- it's all ready for you. A corner table for two. I also understand in all of this, there was a trip you were planning to take you had that con sell it? We love to travel and we had planned a trip to Hong Kong for March and Brandon was diagnosed in January so we cancelled it. Ell, you know what, there's someone in the audience who wants to tell you something, where's Ben? Hey, Ben. Ben. Surprise. Hey Brady. Hey, Amanda. Oh. My name is Ben, I'm co-founder and co-ceo at Cappello where Ben and I worked. I love Brandon and Amanda and their family very much. But on behalf on Cappello's, we want to send you on that trip to Hong Kong. Oh, my gosh. I love you guys. So great to have you here. Yeah, absolutely. Thank you. You got a little man to hug there.
