Fundraiser helping RCSO detective with battle against prostate cancer

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

A special fundraiser helped Rowan County Sheriff's detective David Earnhardt with medical expenses he will be facing as he battles cancer.

Earnhardt told WBTV that he is thankful that his cancer was detected early, but he will still need surgery for prostate cancer, and will be traveling to a special clinic in Florida soon.

On Tuesday a special fundraiser was held in the parking lot of the courthouse on the Liberty Street side.  Coworkers, friends, and family members all came out to help in the effort.

Tents were set up to sell sausage sandwiches, chili beans, and to take donations for Earnhardt's expenses.
