Family raises money for loved one's fight against cancer

LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- A local family is hosting a fundraiser to help a loved one's fight against cancer.

Mike Ruffcorn Sr. was diagnosed with stage four colon and liver cancer back in June.

Right now, Ruffcorn is undergoing chemotherapy every two weeks and his ability to work is limited. That's why his family is raising money tonight at Rascal's Bar and Grill.

Tonight's fundraiser has lots of cool things people can win, like posters with signatures from Chicago Bears players and a 50-inch Samsung TV.

"It's totally awesome. I'm just totally overwhelmed by the support I get from people I used to work with, people that I work with, friends of my family's from their works, some people I've never even met before, but everybody's stepping up to the plate and just being such a blessing to me and my family," said Ruffcorn.
