A group of Fort Saskatchewan kids are raising money for a big cause.
 
Jace Nerbas was diagnosed with hydronephrosis at six-weeks-old and had his right kidney removed on his third birthday. 
 
He met Cecily in preschool, and the two have since grown up together, Cecily having multiple surgeries and a heart transplant at 10-weeks-old.
 
The two Stollery kids teamed up with Jace's older sister Julia for the Nerbas' third annual lemonade stand to raise money for the Stollery Children's Hospital. They called themselves the 'Squad Squeezers.'
 
"We have stuck together as families. Not just us, but a lot of Stollery families, because we're all kind of in the same boat until we can get our kids immunized," said Jace's mother, Whitney.
 
On Sunday (Aug.29), the three kids and their parents ran the lemonade stand, giving away drinks and snacks. It was run by donation and was just one of many lemonade stands around the province.
 
"We were really busy all day. We still have money coming in, and we are at $2,562 so far," added Whitney. "We have no words; we were crying. The support is just really unreal."
 
This is almost twice what they raised in previous years.
 
"We just want to give a huge thank you to everybody that came out. It really means a lot to us, and it meant a lot to the kids too."
 
Anyone that wants to donate can still do so here.
