METROPOLIS, Ill. - A local community is showing support for a father fighting cancer.

Justin Scott is just 23 years old and was diagnosed with Leukemia.

About 100 people came out to Snakehead Tattoo on Saturday to raise money for Scott, his wife and their two daughters while he is in treatment.

They raffled off free tattoos and piercings, held a car and bike show and even held a silent auction.

All of the proceeds from the event will go to the Scott family.
