LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A South Georgia business brought the community together to help raise money for a brave little boy fighting cancer.

There was a sea of green at the Dental Partners of Southwest Georgia parking lot, all to raise money for 3-year-old Ward Wright and his family. Volunteers sold bracelets and yard signs.

There was also a bake sale, and several donated items for a silent auction. All of the proceeds will help the Wright family pay for medical expenses.

"If anybody has had any major incident with their health than they know that it is a huge cost. And insurance doesn't cover everything, and there are needs to be met. So that is what we are trying to do. Just help him and his family out," said Lisa Tucker.

Ward is at Egleston Hospital in Atlanta getting treatment for a large mass in his stomach. A fund for Ward Wright has been set up at the Gillionville Baptist Church. Anyone interested in donating can call 229-435-9738.
