Aubrey McKee will celebrate his 40th birthday on Saturday during the benefit, which is set for noon to 6 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus hall at 315 Hardy Ave. in Nederland.
There will be a DJ, food, silent auction, split the pot, washer/cornhole tournaments and a bake sale.
McKee was diagnosed with glioblastoma in November. He has undergone surgery to remove what they could and has undergone chemotherapy and radiation several times.
Following surgery McKee had a stroke, which affected his left arm.
