Anyone would be lucky to have a sister like Na’ama Uzan, who has just managed to raise over $25,00 for her special needs older brother.
Na’ama amazingly spent the last year selling drinks, muffins and pastries from a stand outside her home in Toronto and raised over $25,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics.
Nadav, her older brother who is 7-years-old has had neurogenetic disorder since he was just a toddler.
Na’ama’s lemonade stand is one of three kept running by the kind-hearted members of her community, and her story has spread far.
So much so, that David and Steve Low – who have a son with the same disorder – raised $20,000 for a research grant in her name.
Speaking about his daughter’s efforts, David Uzan said:
It’s quite amazing. Even at their young ages, they realize that they can do something to help him.
It’s quite incredible how they’ve all really stepped up.
We agree. Great effort!
