LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - A 9-year-old Lakewood boy who had a lemonade stand this month to raise money for his treatment for brain cancer has died.

KUSA-TV reports (http://goo.gl/t7mr9H ) that Jeremias Moya died Tuesday. Last summer, doctors found a tumor in his brainstem.

Sue Kansteiner, Moya’s former daycare provider, had organized the lemonade-stand fundraiser for him Aug. 14 and dozens of Lakewood police officers and firefighters showed up after they learned the boy was a fan of law enforcement and first responders.

Moya had been on a wheelchair because the tumor made him lose strength in some of his limbs.
