Jake Anders, 17, sits under a tent and sells the hot drink and cookies so his father, a truck driver who will be out of work at least six weeks after his knee replacement operation, can recycle, reported WXIN.

Anders was diagnosed with brain tumor before becoming 12 and cancer returned last December, WXIN reported . In terms of three to six months of living, Anders fought and his tumor has begun to shrink, the TV station reported.
“He is one of the most rewarding children, has always been” Anders “mom, told Amy Anders for WXIN.” He’s just a big big heart and always wants to help people. “
Jeff Anders said he was proud of his son’s thinking and was surprised by fundraiser.

Jake Anders returns to his tent to sell chocolate Saturday and finds that the cold weather that has come to Indiana will increase sales.
