In Spencer County a group decided to spend the Fourth of July Holiday raising money for a woman battling cancer.
What a better way to spend your Fourth of July then riding a motorcycle.
Just over a dozen riders took off from Yellig Park not to long ago on a benefit ride for a woman who's terminally ill with cancer.
This ride wouldn't have been possible without the love of her son-in-law.
Gina Foster has a form of skin cancer and has been told she doesn't have that much longer to live.
Her son-in-law Kevin Geer says he was challenged to come up with a benefit for Gina and came up with today's event.
Geer says thousands of dollars worth of raffle items were donated.
He says he wanted to help out his mother-in-law while he could.
Gina says she actually didn't know about the benefit until about a week ago.
"Since this has all happened she's been living with us," says Geer. "Seeing day for day what takes place with this illness, it just kept getting at me. I started looking at my own mortality and what I've done with my life."
"I about had a heart attack," says Foster. "It was just like 'oh my.' I didn't know how to react. It took my breath away."
Just because the ride is over, doesn't mean the benefit stops.
There's a free concert from Copperhead Creek at 6:00 on the 4th of July at Yellig Park.
There will be lots of raffles, food and all sorts of fundraisers going on to help Gina.
