KPLC TV Meteorologists Ben Terry sends a shout-out to everyone who turned out in support of him and his battle against stage 3 colon cancer. He is fighting and encouraged to fight even harder after this weekend's benefit event in his honor.

Terry couldn't say enough about what the communities support and well wishes mean to him. The benefit on Saturday, June 4th was a massive success and the goal to raise money to help Ben and his family manage the thousands of dollars in medical bills and continued treatment was met. If you missed it, here's a look at the sights and sounds from the event and some of the items that were auctioned off.

There was live entertainment from local artists, food, arts, crafts, and most importantly a silent auction. More than $150,000 was raised on Terry's behalf! Thank you all for a job well done and for coming out to show your love to Southwest Louisiana's favorite weatherman. Below Ben talks about the benefit, and gives an update on the long battle ahead, his current diagnosis, and of course the weather forecast.

Keep fighting Ben! We are with you 1,000% of the way, we are praying for your speedy and full recovery. God bless.
