best friends 1st graders Dylan helps find cure ChocolateBarNever underestimate first-graders.

Jonah Pournazarian, 7, is best friends with Dylan Siegel, 6. Jonah has been diagnosed with glycogen storage disease type 1B , a rare liver disorder that doesn’t have a cure. Dylan decided to raise money for research to help his friend. Late last fall, he hatched a plan.

His parents wanted to do a typical lemonade stand effort, but he looked at them and said, “I want to write a book.”

The effort has exploded into a movement centered around the Chocolate Bar book and the website, www.chocolatebarbook.com. Every book costs $20, with proceeds going to help cure Dylan’s best friend.
