HOLLAND, OH (WTOL) -

Kyle Tarry, from west Toledo, learned on Saturday how much friends and family love him.

Last December, Kyle was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer.

He's since undergone eighteen surgeries and now is in the Cleveland Clinic recovering, awaiting another surgery, followed by therapy.

On Saturday night, a fundraiser was held for Kyle and his wife Kelly at the Bunker Event Center in Holland on Eber Road.

There was food, music, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

Money raised will go toward non-surgical out of pocket expenses.

"The prognosis is good. It's just going to be long; a very long, long recovery. So we're still looking at another year,” said Kyle’s parents Karen and Don Weigel.

A GoFundMe account has also been set up in Kyle's name.

Kyle’s wife Kelly works at WTOL 11 in the engineering department.
