Family and friends of a Commodore native are planning a benefit spaghetti dinner/basket bash for him to help with expenses related to his testicular cancer.
20-year-old Army E4 Specialist Active Duty soldier Jimmy Davis, a 2010 graduate and former athlete at Purchase Line High School, was diagnosed with testicular cancer earlier this year and was brought back from the Iraq/Kuwait theater in June. He underwent surgery to remove a tumor on September 11th and is receiving chemotherapy.

The event on December 1st is to help defray costs not covered by insurance. It begins at5 PM at the Kinport Assembly of God Ministry Center along Route 240 in Cherry Tree and the drawings for the baskets will start at7 PM.
