GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Several Coast businesses are banning together to help an iconic South Mississippi entrepreneur who is battling cancer.

On Monday, Dec. 7, Chick-fil-A on Highway 49 in Gulfport will hold an all-day fundraiser in honor of Steve Johnson, also known as Scuba Steve.

The event begins at 6 a.m. and lasts until the doors close at 10 p.m.

If customers mention Scuba Steve when ordering their meal, a portion of the proceeds will go toward Johnson's cancer treatment.

This is the second fundraiser put on by a South Mississippi Chick-fil-A. Last week, the Chick-fil-A inside Edgewater Mall held a similar fundraiser and raised $2,689.

Johnson, who is known for his Scuba Steve T-shirt brand, is battling stage 4 colorectal cancer.

He is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.
