The Broussard community continues to come together in support of a firefighter fighting cancer.

The City of Broussard, the Broussard Fire Department, and Our Lady of Lourdes hosted a blood drive Monday to raise money to help with Alex Bourque's medical expenses. Bourque, 25, is currently battling bone cancer.

Monday's drive is the second benefit that the city has held to help Bourque.

"We're happy to rally our people and help Alex," said Ray Bourque, Mayor of Broussard. "This is just a community event that we're doing, we're stationed in the parking lot of Broussard City Hall. It's all for a good cause. It's going to help a lot of people in our region, it's going to help Alex with his medical bills."

If you missed the drive today, there's still a chance to donate - the drive is happening until 8 p.m. at Broussard City Hall.
