University of Nebraska at Omaha's student-run radio station MavRadio is holding a fundraiser for one of their fellow classmates who was diagnosed with cancer in October.

From a live remote broadcast in the college quad Monday, to and online fundraiser, the students have already raised more than three thousand dollars. They're hoping to raise awareness for Adam LaRose, a broadcasting student who began chemotherapy treatments the first week of November.

"Adam is a very special person who means a lot to his classmates at the University of Nebraska at Omaha," their fundraising page says. "He served in the United States Marine Corps for eight years and now we (his classmates) want to return the favor by serving him in his time of need. If every UNO student just gave one dollar to support Adam, he could focus his energy on getting healthy - not paying bills."

To donate, the group's GoFundMe account is at https://www.gofundme.com/gk9h7cxg.
