Balkman took orders behind the table at Anthony's Lemonade Stand, 13-year-old Anthony Frederick's fundraiser for cancer research. The teenager's mother, Dru Frederick, was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. His father, Tony, is currently undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia.
Analysis: Balkman, a former South Carolina Gamecock, heard about the family through one of his old classmates and wanted to take part. The 6-foot-8 Balkman handed out cold cups of lemonade, posed for pictures and shook hands with those stopping by at Dent Middle School.
