Why This 8-Year-Old Boy Set Up a Lemonade Stand in a Hospital

Ulises Ornelas is an 8-year-old boy who is treating his injuries in a unique way: by selling lemonade to hospital residents and staff.

Ornelas recently underwent brain surgery at the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The surgery caused the left side of his body to be temporarily paralyzed – so as a means of treating his limbs, his occupational therapist Liz Pohlen advised him to move around the hospital.

Ornelas and Pohlen then got the idea to use a lemonade stand as a part of his neuromuscular reeducation.

To make matters even better, the money that he raises from the lemonade will be donated back to the hospital that treated him.
