A fundraiser earlier this month to help an Asheville bartender battling cancer raised nearly $14,000.
Bartender Jason Crosby from The Junction was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and does not have health insurance. Colleagues at bars across the city donated their tips from one work shift and their bars matched the funds.
Patrons who heard about the fundraiser also donated money. The money went to Crosby, his wife and two children.
