CUDAHY (WITI) — Cudahy High School hosted a fundraiser for 18-year-old, Dylan Dooley, who is suffering from a rare form of bone cancer at Friday night’s basketball game.

The varsity basketball team hosted a Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser last year, and the proceeds from that event usually are donated back to the American Cancer Society.

However, this year they decided to dedicate a game and fundraiser to Dylan Dooley. Dylan was a mascot at basketball games while he was a student at Cudahy High School.

The money raised through t-shirt sales and through a 50/50 raffle is going to be given to Dylan’s family.

Members of the boys basketball team also collected funds during lunch at the high school on Friday.

In addition to the fundraiser, students, parents and fans will be wearing yellow t-shirts to support Dylan. The color yellow serves as a dual purpose, as it is one of the colors of Cudahy High School, and it is also the designated color for Dylan’s type of cancer, which is Ewing’s Sarcoma.
