Most everyone has gone through hard times during their life. When “life hands you lemons, you make lemonade” is more than just an expression. It is about resiliency and getting through those hard times. These coping skills and hope for the future can take the lemon and turn them into something sweet. Lemonade for Life helps families realize that they are strong and already have a lot of skills necessary to make positive changes in their life.
