GILBERT, Ariz. - The Higley High School Knights are showing what it means to be a family. The team is raising money to benefit their friend and teammate Marcus Edwards, who recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor.

Edwards is recovering after a complicated surgery.

His teammates are selling T-shirts in hopes to help offset the tremendous cost of his treatment. Those shirts can be purchased at a charity cornhole tournament happening Feb. 17, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

A family friend of Edwards' says he is getting better day by day, but the recovery is a slow process.

Best wishes to Marcus on a speedy recovery!
