Successful Fundraiser for Jacob Williams

Jacob Williams and his family were all smiles last night as about 500 people showed up at Shirley B's in Anton to show their support.

Shirley B's held a spaghetti fundraiser last night to raise money for the Williams family as they help their son fight cancer. Jacob, a junior wide receiver at Anton High was diagnosed a few weeks ago with a rare form of cancer in which doctors removed an 8 pound tumor from his abdomen. The benefit supper raised more than $6,500 last night to help with the family's medical expenses.

"What I'd like to express is that all of the families in Anton know that this could happed to any family and we want the Williams family to know that they have the support of the community," says family friend Lori Little.

Jacob will be leaving soon for further treatment at M.D. Anderson in Houston.
