Kinsley Crushes Cancer fundraiser coming to Wauconda June 8

Kinsley, 3, and Emmy, 5, were diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia one month apart. These young girls are facing a battle that no child should have to endure during these priceless years of their life.

The community is invited to take part in the Kinsley Crushes Cancer fundraiser, held through the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. The event will be held 1-5 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Lindy's Landing, 115 Park St., Wauconda.

Currently, childhood cancer receives less than 4% of federal cancer research funding. You can help Kinsley and Emmy by donating to the event, attending the lemonade stand, or making a donation at

Money donated will go directly to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer.
