If there was ever a person who could turn lemons into lemonade, it is Winnetka’s 5-year-old Reese Felderman.

At age 3, the youngster was diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia or JMML — an aggressive form of childhood cancer — and was forced to move with her family across country to receive treatments at The University of California San Francisco.
