ASHEBORO - Asheboro held a community barbecue and auction fundraiser Saturday to help one hero in the fight of his life.
Larry J. Phillips suffers from a rare form of cancer.
Everyone from his boss at the Asheboro Fire Department to his ex-wife's mother pitched in to help raise money for medical bills.
Phillips says he still tries to go out to fight fires when he's not too sick to leave.
