They paid contractors to rebuild the home, but the company never finished the job. They took the money and ran, leaving the family to pick up the pieces.

Alyssa, heartbroken seeing her parents suffer, took it upon herself to raise money to rebuild their home. She wrote a letter to The Kane Show asking if they could help advertise her lemonade stand.

One customer, who received a strawberry lemonade, asked Alyssa jokingly, "If life gave you lemons, why did you make strawberry lemonade?"

Alyssa responded, "Well, sometimes life also gives you strawberries!"

Alyssa has made over $15,000 so far with her lemonade sales and a Go Fund Me page she set up for donations. If you would like to help her cause, you can donate here.
