Community Rallies Behind Bentonville Coach Diagnosed With Cancer

BENTONVILLE (KFSM) -- A Bentonville High School football coach continues his battle with brain cancer and support from the community is still as strong as ever.

On Saturday (Aug. 25) evening, at Tiger Stadium in Bentonville, Coach David Bradley received two checks to help with medical expenses that totaled more than $20,000.

In August the team partnered with Sports Clips to have a fundraiser to help the coach expenses as a result of cancer.

Sports Clips Manager Tundra Anderson said the shop hit their goal for donations.

"We more than doubled our goal ... so we just are extremely pleased with the support and the way the community stepped up," said Anderson.
