A town is coming together to help a neighbor struggling with cancer.

Neighbors in Grottoes are showing their support with their wallets and their presence at a bingo on Saturday.

More than 100 people are at a bingo fundraiser for Alice Roadcap.

She has cancer again, after being cancer-free for six years.

One of the organizers said families donated food, money and time to make the event possible.

The money will be used to pay bills to keep Roadcap's treatment going.

She said she just finished paying for her last treatment when she relapsed.

"I am beyond words, my heart is so happy with. I am just overjoyed. I can't believe all the love and support and prayers that I have gotten and that's why I'm still here today," Roadcap said.

Organizers said more people showed up than they expected.
