DE PERE, WI-- A benefit held for a father battling stage IV cancer.

Ben Gasparick was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2006 at the age of 31. He was doing well until 2011 when the cancer returned. He's had multiple surgeries and treatments but is unable to work. A scan also revealed ten more tumors and his family says nothing more can be done.

Legends of De Pere hosted the benefit with food, silent auctions, and raffles to help his wife and three children.

"I believe the turnout has just been a turnout between family, friends, and the community. It's just been unbelievable. Local businesses that have contributed more than I could even fathom,” said Dale Gasparick, Ben Gasparick’s father.

Donations for the Gasparicks can also be made at any Bank Mutual.
