In 2012, Tim Wesley was given 18 to 24 months to live. He was diagnosed with a rare form of appendix cancer and almost two years later, there's no evidence of it in his body.

Tim and his family held an awareness benefit for people living with and affected by rare forms of cancer Saturday night.

Their organization "Be UninTIMidated" educates, advocates for and financially helps people who need to travel to see specialists just like they did.

The fundraiser had casino games, wine and beer tasting and music. Everything raised is used for appendix cancer research and patient/family care.

"My wife and I spent three months searching for a life saving procedure with Dr. Armando Sardi at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland in July of 2012 and he is the reason why I'm standing here today to talk to you," said Wesley.
