WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A friend and brother are helping someone very special to them, who is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, by selling lemonade, toys, Legos and much more at the corner of Rhea and Lavell.
Zeppelin Gubernath, Kollin Teafatiller and Kooper Teafatiller are trying to raise money for an M.S. organization. 
Kooper has suffered from M.S. since he was 4-years-old.
Kollin said they are selling an array of items for his brother.
    "We are going to be selling toys, a WWE belt, bubbles and lemonade," Kollin said.
Along with these items were Legos and a signed 1995 Denver Broncos Anthony Miller collectible card.
Zeppelin said he wants to help his friend.
    "It is important to me to help Kooper with his M.S. because he is my best friend and has been struggling with the disease," Zeppelin said. "I want to help him figure out a way to cure it so he can be just like Kollin and myself."
Kooper said the struggles are constant.
    "A couple weeks ago I was in the hospital for a week or two," Kooper said. "When I came home, I got separation anxiety because I was there so long."
However, he said Kollin and Zeppelin have been there through the rough times.
    "I need help for my medical bills and driving all the way to Dallas and back," Kooper said. "I have known Zeppelin since kindergarten. He has been my best friend and has helped me get through all of this."
Zeppelin said that it is a win-win situation because he gets to hang out with his friends and raise money towards a cause he is passionate about.
The boys said they have done this before and are considering setting up again tomorrow to raise even more money.
