VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Dozens of people in Vicksburg showed their support for a young woman battling cancer, by attending a benefit car wash.  

The car wash began this morning in front of Taco Bell.

The proceeds will help 23-year-old Gabrielle Butler pay her medical bills.

Butler was first diagnosed with sarcoma while she was a teenager in high school.

Now, the disease has returned again, and Butler has tumors on her brain, liver and other organs.

Her mother says she's proud of the turnout today.

"It shows that the community loves my daughter, and we're sticking together so she can get through this trial. We're gonna fight for her. Just like she's fighting, we're gonna fight for her, too."

You can donate to the Gabby Cancer Fund at Go-Fund me and Bancorp South.
