TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Saturday was a special day for a former Florida High football player Cam Brown, a Western Carolina football signee, fighting osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
On Saturday, the Rockhill Missionary Baptist Church hosted a rib cook off and fun day fundraiser for Cam which included, a car show, vendors, arts, a bounce house and of course, lots of great barbecue.
The money raised, will go towards medical costs, and the trips to and from Gainesville where Cam receives his treatment.
So many people are looking to help:
"It was very important for us as Buffalo Soldiers to come out and support Cam in his time of need. He is a dynamic athlete and we're all kind of regretful that this current situation happened to such a great guy," said Ernest Jones, a member of the Buffalo Soldiers. "But we wanted to come out, and show our support not only for the community, but especially to him and his family."
The fight is far from over. Cam's next treatment is set for August 7th.
