Meet Wesley, this year's Anthem LemonAid Ambassador

Four-year-old Wesley Haskins is the 2024 Ambassador for Anthem LemonAid presented by Richmond Ford. Wesley was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer that forms in the soft tissue. In December 2023, when Wesley began limping, Jade and Roland thought he may be experiencing growing pains. But when the limp returned with pain, Wesley’s pediatrician requested an x-ray, which showed a lesion on his leg bone.
