After being diagnosed with cancer, a fundraiser is slatted for Friday. It's to help a Kilgore College student afford chemotherapy.

Posted: Updated:
LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Alex Jehlen, 19-years old went in for Hernia surgery last month. The Doctor's found something much worse. Alex was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The young girl's family does not have access to insurance, and it has caused friends around her to try and gather support.

On Friday, June 6th at the Reserve in Longview, a day benefiting Alex will take place. 

The event will last all day. From 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. there will be a silent auction, raffle drawing, food, Karaoke contests, a concert from Cole Allen, and guest speaker Walt Cade from Storage Wars. 

Attendance is free but donations are encouraged. All proceeds will go to Jehlen's chemotherapy treatments.
