A fundraiser will be held Saturday in Cornelius to raise funds to help a Mooresville man as he fights cancer.

Dan Murphy, 28, was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. A non-smoker, his grandmother says this is rare in someone so young.

Murphy and his family moved to the town of Mooresville in 2005. He attended Lake Norman High School and worked at Duckworths in Mooresville and Harp and Crown and Alton’s in Cornelius.

As he battles cancer, his medical bills have exceeded $50,000.

A fundraiser will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Lake Town Tavern, located at 19708 W. Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. There will be food trucks and raffles. His family has also set up a GoFundMe account, which can be found by searching Help Dan beat Lung Cancer.

Murphy currently lives in Cornelius.
