Fundraiser at Pineapple Willy’s Helps Local Resident With Medical Expenses

Posted: Updated:

"We're In This Together" was the theme of a fundraising event at Pineapple Willy's in Panama City Beach.

It was a way to show local resident Russ Spivey that he's not alone in his battle with leukemia.

Spivey was diagnosed with the disease in January, and has undergone three rounds of chemotherapy.

His most recent diagnosis shows the disease is in remission, but now he needs a bone marrow transplant, and that could be just days away.

Saturday's event helped raise money for Spivey's medical expenses.
