For months now, filming and production for the star-studded film ‘Suicide Squad’ has taken over Toronto, but it wasn’t all lights, camera, action in the downtown core.

As the film wrapped up its production over the weekend, two actors in the upcoming movie stopped by a little girl’s lemonade stand after hearing about her inspirational cause.

Actors Jai Courtney and Margot Robbie heard about Na’ama Uzan’s heartwarming crusade to help raise money to find a cure for Angelman Syndrome.

The five-year-old girl was inspired by her brother, Nadav, who has the rare neurological disorder which makes it difficult for him to speak or walk.

“I heard about Na’ama’s story and what she’s doing for her brother Nadav,” Courtney told CTV News. “There’s no act too small when you’re talking about making a difference.”

In 2014, Uzan opened her lemonade stand and started to raise money for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).

A year and a half later, the five-year-old has raised $64,000.

Uzan hopes that one day “all the Angelman kids will be able to talk and not have seizures and epilepsy.”

“I used to do little stands like this when I was little and I’d just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store,” Robbie told CTV News. “I’m glad she’s doing something far more noble with her cause.”

Thanks to her fundraising efforts there are a number of clinical trials in place to help find a cure for Angelman Syndrome. There’s also a research chair in her name with someone that is dedicated to researching this disease.

“Everything is just day-to-day, getting a little bit better one step at a time,” Uzan’s mother told CTV News of seven-year-old son, Nadav. “Each little step is so meaningful to his daily life.”
