Kid Invents Kangaroo Cup with Her Dad

This is a great story!  A girl, Lily Born, notices that her grandfather keeps spilling his drink due to Parkinson’s Disease.  It upsets her and wants to do something about it.  So she invents a cup with her dad that doesn’t spill and calls it a Kangaroo Cup.  

Here’s a video with Lily in it:  https://d2pq0u4uni88oo.cloudfront.net/projects/981087/video-383707-h264_high.mp4

I love these kinds of stories!  Way to go dad!
