FORT MYERS, Fla. — A young boy is getting a second chance at life now that he's cancer-free. Joey was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2017 and underwent his last chemotherapy treatment last month. His family hosted an auction to pay for his medical expenses at Palm City Brewing Company on Saturday.

His family says the proceeds from the event will go directly to medical expenses and long term care of Joey's health.

They auctioned off and raffled off gift cards and merchandise donated by many local businesses.
