A little girl whose efforts to raise money for children with pediatric cancer — children just like her — has passed away.

Nevaeh Denine, 9, died Monday, according to a post on a Facebook page used by the family in the past.

As news of the girl's passing spread online, tributes to her were also shared.

Began lemonade stand as a way to give back

Nevaeh, who was from the Goulds area of St. John's, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma when she was three years old.

  Woman accused in 2015 Shoppers Drug Mart stabbing death fit to stand trial, review board finds A woman charged with first-degree murder in the 2015 stabbing death of a young woman in a downtown Toronto Shoppers Drug Mart is fit to stand trial this fall, the Ontario Review Board has found.   Rohinie Bisesar, 43, was ordered by a judge to undergo more treatment Toronto's Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) earlier this year to determine whether she was fit to stand trial.  Bisesar has been in custody since her arrest in connection with the slaying of 28-year-old Rosemarie Junor.

In 2014, the young girl started Nevaeh's Lemonade Stand to support her community as they had supported her with fundraisers after her diagnosis.

The lemonade stand was her idea, her family has said, and along with becoming a much-anticipated annual summer event it has raised tens of thousands of dollars for other pediatric cancer patients.

In 2016, when she was six, the cancer returned.

On July 28 the most recent Nevaeh's Lemonade Stand event was held in Paradise Park in Paradise, with Nevaeh in attendance.

But friends, family and supporters posted to social media in recent days to ask people to wear orange on August 6 to show their support for her.
