Veteran fighting for his life and needs financial assistance

October 30, 2015

 

Hattiesburg, MS - Dillon Roundtree is a 24 year old veteran who recently returned from Afghanistan after serving with the 858th Engineering Company in the Army National Guard.

 

After returning home from his deployment, he was rushed to the hospital where doctors discovered he had testicular cancer.

 

Dillon's family is raising funds to help him with medical expenses, that due to the changes in his insurance coverage, the military is not covering.

 

Kaneese Bridges, his aunt, says, "He is strong, he is a fighter, he is tough, he's got high spirits, but he is very weak and is in a lot of pain."

 

Dillon's fundraiser will take place next Saturday, November 7th, 2015 at the Granby Volunteer Fire Department in Prentiss.
