Fundraiser set to help family battling fire and cancer

Family battling cancer loses home in fire. (St. Lucie County Fire Dist.)

The community is stepping up to help a family hit hard by cancer and now a fire.

Flames destroyed the Bembry family home on Southwest Monterrey Lane in Port St. Lucie on Monday morning, three weeks before Christmas.

It's the second bit of bad news for the family, as homeowner DeLacy Bembry is battling stage 4 breast cancer.

The Van Duzer Foundation set up a fundraiser to help the family "get home for Christmas."

The fundraiser is Wednesday, Dec. 13, at Big Apple Pizza and Pasta. The event begins at 4 p.m.

The restaurant will donate 100 percent of sales, staff salaries and tips to the Bembry family. You can visit the foundation's website or call (772) 528-3467 for more information.
