ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Cancer research is paying off, leading to treatments that are fighting and winning against the disease. This weekend, the American Cancer Society will hold a fundraiser to collect more money for research.

We caught up with volunteers at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Albany who were busy preparing decorations for the big bash Saturday night.

"Everybody is affected by cancer. I don't know anyone who is not and the more money we raise, the more research can be done and the more people we can help," said Committee Volunteer Debbie Reynolds.

The guest of honor is young Ward Wright. He was diagnosed with stage four cancer two years ago and is now in remission.

Tickets are still available. They are $100 each. Call 229-446-1073 for tickets.
