Knoxville-area Froyoz raises funds to help boy fight cancer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- This weekend, Froyoz will be hosting a fundraising event to not only raise money for a good cause, but to hopefully make a difference in the life of one cherished youth.

Jacob Reagan was diagnosed with cancer around 15 months of age.

Now 7, Jacob faces a relapse. Healthcare is never easy to come by. Jacob’s family needs our help to afford the costs. This is where Froyoz steps in to lend a helping hand.

On Sunday, all East Tennessee Froyoz locations including Fountain City, Clinton Hwy., Northshore Town Center, Maryville, Pigeon Forge, and Bearden will be holding a fundraising event to raise money for his treatment.

All the customers need to do is tell the cashier “we’re here for Jacob” and 15% of their purchase will be donated the Jacob Reagan Foundation. Donation buckets will also be available.

To make a donation, all one needs to do is ask for the Jacob Reagan Foundation at any Suntrust location.
