Fundraiser For Coach Battling Cancer

BENTONVILLE (KFSM) --  The Bentonville community huddled around high school football coach David Bradley for a fundraiser Sunday (Aug. 5) after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

The parking lot of Ron's Hamburgers and Chili of Bentonville and Sports Clips Haircuts was ground zero for that effort Sunday. Ron's donated 50 percent of its sales to the coach's medical expenses. Sports Clips also donated a portion of its sales to help the coach.

Students from Bentonville High School helped raised money by holding a car wash in the parking lot.

In July doctors found a tumor the size of a baseball on the right side of Bradley's brain.

Those who know him have said he's an inspiration to the kids he coaches, and that's why they put this fundraiser together.

"This has been so humbling to see the support," Bradley said. "I knew that I knew good people, but there's people that I don't even know that are out here and it's just so uplifting to see."
