JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

The community of Jackson, Missouri is coming together to support a communications officer going through cancer treatments.

Billi Knight was diagnosed with cancer late in 2017.

To show support, the police department sold bracelets. All proceeds and donations went to help pay for her medical expenses.

They are also hosting events throughout the month of February to help raise funds for Knight. 

On February 7, Wings Etc. will donate 10% of your food and drink subtotal to Knight. 

On February 16, the department is hosting a Trivia Night and Silent Auction at the Jackson Civic Center. 

On February 21, Stooges in Jackson will donate 15% of your food subtotal from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

If you can't make any of these events there is a Billi Knight Cancer Fund at the Bank of Missouri.

Knight said the support from the community is making her battle with cancer easier than she thought it would be. 

"I really do feel like I don't have to do much fighting because I feel like everyone is fighting for me," said Knight.
