West Loop bakery hosts special fundraiser for Park Ridge girl battling leukemia

Chicago's Levain Bakery in the West Loop transformed on Tuesday to support the fight against childhood cancer and to celebrate a special birthday.

Riley Cadiz from Park Ridge has been fighting leukemia for two years, and on Tuesday, she turned four. To make her birthday extra special, Levain Bakery went all out.

The bakery collaborated with the nonprofit Alex's Lemonade Stand and became Alex's Lemonade Cookie Stand for the day.

On Tuesday, all proceeds from Levain's lemonade cookies will support Riley and the Cadiz family in her battle against cancer.

Levain employees wore "Team Riley" T-shirts, sang Happy Birthday to her and presented her with a cookie cake and a crown.

Alex's Lemonade Stand is a nonprofit organization that raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Their mission is to change the lives of children with cancer by raising awareness, funding research and empowering their young patients.
