23-year-old Joe Gilbert from Eau Claire suffers from a form of Sarcoma Cancer, that only a hand full of Americans suffer from every year.
The cancer is in his abdomen and is an aggressive form, as a result Gilbert is undergoing aggressive chemo therapy treatments.
Gilbert says he's trying to live life to its fullest and have as much fun as he can.
This Saturday Oct. 15, friends and family of Joe Gilbert will hold a benefit to help raise money.
It will be at the Clubhouse on Lake Altoona from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.
There will be an auction, food, raffles, and a silent auction.
