BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi firefighters held a BBQ fundraiser on Friday to help a member of the fire department who is battling cancer.

Allen Brindley is a mechanic and was recently diagnosed with liver cancer. Firefighters, and members of the Biloxi Fire Museum, sold more than 200 plates of homemade pulled pork sandwiches to help with Brindley's medical expenses.

The event was held on 9/11 as a way to bring the community together.
