TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Delicious treats added up to a sweet reward for young people battling cancer.

On Friday, 6-year-old Berkeley Kemper and Karis Selk, 7, returned to Hy-Vee to share the wealth from the "Courageous Cupcake" stand they set up there last weekend.

The girls' efforts raised $5,000 for the Jessie Rees Foundation - Never, Ever Give Up. The foundation makes "Joy Jars" items to bring joy to children battling cancer.

It's a struggle both girls know well. Both are cancer survivors - Berkeley is fighting Leukemia and Karis is officially in remission from a brain tumor.
