Colleagues of long-time juvenile probation officer Gary Bollinger hosted a fund raising lunch in his honor.

In May, Bollinger was diagnosed with Epithilioid Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Since then the father of two-year-old triplets has been unable to work.

On Friday, Aug. 4, co-workers at the Juvenile Justice Center hosted a hamburger lunch in his honor.

Hundreds of people turned out to support Bollinger and his family. More than 1,700 hamburgers were sold, raising over $8,000.

Bollinger travels to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston for chemotherapy.

He says he's sticking with the power of positive thinking, and has no doubt he will beat the disease.
