Fish fry and silent auction to support local man
St. Martin Community Center was filled with orange t-shirts Sunday morning.
People wore orange at the fish fry and silent auction in support of Jeremy Forehand who was diagnosed with renal cancer in May. Forehand graduated from D’Iberville High School in 1996 after years as the varsity football quarterback. In 2013, he began working field crew for St. Martin because his daughters played for that school.
Forehand created the hashtag #wrasslincancer in support of his battle. He tells News 25 that he is thankful these communities come together as one and show support for him. “It’s very helpful. It helps you stay positive as best as you can and it helps you forget what you are dealing with. It’s just life, you know, and hey we are wrasslin cancer. That’s my thing. I like wrassling and you know that’s what it is.”
Anyone who would like to donate can make donations directly to the family at Keesler Federal Credit Union.
