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.

McKee was scheduled to get married later this year but he and his then fiancé Sarah moved the date up and were wed Jan. 2 and now live in Beaumont.

The benefit will help the family with medical and related bills.
