Get your boats and fishing poles ready for a bass tournament this weekend. You will have a chance to win some money and it's all for a good cause.

Tifton resident Scott Brady is asking for the community to lend their support.

His brother Jeremy Luke was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that has now spread.

And Instead of celebrating his 40th birthday today Jeremy Luke was taken to the E.R..

Brady says he will do what ever it takes to get Luke's 3 daughters and 4 year old grandson here from Washington State to see him.

Lukes family is inviting everyone to Veteran's Memorial Park on Saturday June 14th from 6AM to 2pm to see who can catch the biggest bass.

Entry fee is 80 dollars.. There will be prize money and a raffle including a grille from Lowes and Denali fishing equipment.

Refreshments and t-shirts will be available after the tournament.

Anyone is welcome. The launch will take place from the new ramp on lake blackshear just after 6am..

Brady says "Unfortunately in a situation like this you never know what tomorrow will bring so we're trying our best and our hardest to get em here as quickly as possible."

There is no need to sign up just show up at the new ramp on Lake Blackshear at 6am there will be an 80 percent payback for the winners. 

All proceeds will help with medical expenses along with Jeremy's biggest wish to see his kids that he hasn't seen in 6 years.

There is a fund set up at www.gofundme.com/battleforjeremy You can also donate at First Community Bank in Tifton or any Synovus bank branch under Jeremy Luke Fund.
