Lemon Aid Stand for “Lemon Aid for Tanner” Sat., 6.16.12 – 10am to 2pm

A local Cardiff family will be setting up a lemon aid stand on Saturday, June 16 from 10am to 2pm in front of our store.

We thought we would share this letter that we received regarding Tanner and his sister:

Dear Friends,

You are invited to participate in an event called LEMON-AID FOR TANNER (see flyer attached). Most of us are so blessed to have healthy children but one of our local Cardiff families has faced many challenges with their children’s health and that is why I am reaching out to you today. Pria Rico is my son Eddie’s classmate and she just had her 40th surgery at the tender age of 11. At age 5, Pria was diagnosed with Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis, or RRP in which tumors continuously grow in her throat and are removed about every other month.

If that’s not enough to deal with, Pria’s younger brother Tanner who is 7 has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophies. DMD is a devastating, progressive muscle-wasting disorder that slowly robs those diagnosed of their independence and eventually their life. Tanner is monitored by specialists in Ohio several times a year and he is involved in a clinical study where he travels to UC Davis every couple weeks. You can only imagine how expensive Pria and Tanner’s medical care is. Their father also has been in and out of the hospital several times this year. Their mother Traci is looking for an accounting job.

To help the Rico family we are having a fundraising event called LEMON-AID FOR TANNER on June 16th. It’s as simple is having your kids up set a lemonade stand for a few hours and donating the proceeds either online at or by check (see website for the address.)

You can drop off your donation at Seaside Market in Cardiff and meet Tanner and his family between 10:00-2:00.
