On Sunday, July 7, Brandon Campbell passed away after a battle with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. He was a warrior, a husband, and a father.
Amidst the grief, Brady, his 6 year-old son decided to host a lemonade stand. He sold to neighbors and friends. After a local police officer stopped by to figure out what the gathering was, he placed a radio call to other first responders. Firetrucks and police cars started rolling up to the stand and he raised $244. That night he told Amanda, his mom, he wanted to take her on a date with his money and do something to honor his Dad. It was the ultimate “life gives you lemons” story from a child who has suffered an incredible loss.
We’re offering this as a virtual lemonade stand. At age 6, Brady honored everything Brandon wished for in his legacy- that his family was lovingly together and that he could help others.
We will use a small portion of the funds raised for Brady and Amanda to continue having adventures (and dates) together. We will use the rest to honor the Palliative Care Team and Cancer Center at University of Colorado Anschutz. Even in Brandon’s darkest days fighting cancer, he still believed in honoring the people who serve as cheerleaders and advocates for those struggling.
A celebration of Brandon’s life was held on July 13 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado on July 13. A separate service will be held in his native Alberta, Canada at a later date.
He was a wonderful father and husband. We would be grateful if you would support his legacy with a little virtual lemonade!
