Cameron Zamora, holding sign, and Jared Robison, both sixth-graders at Barnett Elementary School, raise money at a lemonade stand for Liam Houck, 16-month-old Ramona boy who needs a kidney transplant.

When Cameron Zamora, 10, learned that a Ramona family needed money for their 16-month-old son, he immediately told his mother Cindy, “I want to have a lemonade stand.”

“We dropped everything so we could start making cookies and lemonade,” said Cindy Zamora.

Cameron and his friend Jared Robison, both incoming sixth-graders at Barnett Elementary School, received permission to set the stand at Arena Way and Open View Road. In one hour they raised $27 for Liam Houck, who is in end-stage renal failure and needs a kidney transplant. See article, page 1, for more information about Liam and his family.

“I just felt sorry for him,” said Cameron, explaining what motivated him to have the fundraising stand.

He said he and Jared most likely will return to the intersection this week in hopes of raising more money for Liam.
