(WBIR - Knoxville) A Knoxville family got a little extra support from a local charity to help pay medical bills.
A $6,600 check was presented to the Griffis family Wednesday evening at Moe's Northshore.
Jeff Griffis has been battling colon cancer for two years.
Set to Serve is a fundraiser helping families who have endured hardships. The money was raised through the entry fees of a volleyball tournament held this June.
The Griffis family just wants to thank everyone who made this possible.
"Thank you doesn't cut it. No matter what I say or do it doesn't cut the blessings that Katie and Set to Serve have given us. When I opened the check I was not expecting that much help. It's going to take a lot of stress off of me and my family for a while," said Jeff Griffis.
This was the second year for the Set to Serve tournament and fundraiser, and they plan to continue with a new family next year.
