ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of people put on their best or most unusual ties Thursday night to help fight cancer.

Each year, the Cancer Ties committee raises money for a different cancer patient. Thursday's  fourth annual event helped Jamie Taylor who's battling colon cancer.

He says the illness helped him realize how important it is to reach out to others. 

"It would be a lot better if everybody sticks together like this and steps up and it  helps them through it if it's cancer or whatever," said Taylor.

Cancer Ties symbolizes the tie we all have to cancer.
