Friend Organizes Benefit For Friend Battling Cancer

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A lot of people have had a trying time in their life, a time when they found out who their true friends were.

Jennifer Lutz was diagnosed colon cancer in June and without even knowing, her friend Tara Wait organized a benefit in her honor.

It was at Southern Smoke Tavern Harley Davidson Shop that Lutz and her husband own.

There was a run, corn hole tournament and even live music. Wait said Lutz is like a little sister to her.

"I just want to make sure that Jennifer and her family are doing good," Wait said. "I hope that I've helped to raise enough money to help them pay all the medical bills to get their son tested for the cancer because, you know, it's a genetic thing for their family."

They don't know how much money they've raised Saturday, but they say it was a great success.
