Lynn Haven-- Dozens of people got together at a fish fry in Lynn Haven Saturday afternoon to help out a local man fighting brain cancer.
Steve Retherford is an investigator at the Bay County Sherrif's office and was diagnosed with brain cancer last year.

Friends and family are trying to raise funds to ease the burden of everyday expenses as well as medical and travel expenses.

Saturday, they held a fish fry at Sharon Sheffield Park in Lynn Haven. Fish plates included fried fish, 2 sides, dessert, and a drink.

Cold stone creamery was there, too and donated 25 percent of their sales along with other vendors donating partial proceeds to the Retherford family.

"Steve has been fighting melanoma cancer for over a year now. We are proud of that fact and we're here to raise money for the family. We've got lots of friends, family in the community that have come out and supported us in this,” said family friend, Chris Shuman.

A benefit account has been set up for Steve Retherford at Hancock bank if you would like to donate.
