When life throws you lemons...

Saeja Jameson, 9, of Canyon will be selling lemonade, one cup at a time, on Saturday and in April to raise money in the area in support of those living with multiple sclerosis.

Jameson's aunt was diagnosed with MS several years ago. After seeing her aunt’s struggles, Jameson decided to take action. She and her mom contacted the Panhandle Office of the National MS Society, wanting to have a lemonade stand at Walk MS on April 18.

In the meantime, she'll get a little bussinesswoman practice this week during MS Awareness Week. Jameson will set up her stand from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Wal-Mart Super Center at 45th and Coulter to raise money to combat the disease.

Also on Jameson's Facebook page, she has already raised more than $2,000 toward her goal of $2,500. You can visit her page at the National MS Society's websit eat http://main.nationalmssociety.org.
