Suck it up! #LemonsForLeukemia sheds light on need for bone marrow donors

Two best friends are behind the challenge.

You've no doubt see this making the rounds on social media -- #lemonsforlukemia.

It's the latest social challenge attempting to bring attention to a cause. This time it's the need for bone marrow donations.

Two best friends are behind the challenge, 20-year-old Chris Betancourt whose leukemia returned, and Dillon Hill who took time off from college to help his dying friend fulfill his bucket list.

They set up the social media campaign to raise awareness for the need for bone marrow donors. They were hoping to set a world record yesterday for the most lemons eaten in 24 hours -- we're still waiting to hear if they did.

Chris's bucket list is long, but it has some pretty achievable things -- like going to see a major league baseball game.

You can check out Chris’s bucket list if you’d like to donate to one of the dreams on his list.
