OZARK, Mo. — It's a story of faith, hope and perseverance.  Saturday afternoon there was a party in Ozark for 10-year-old Gavin Green.

Green has been battling cancer, but Friday was Gavin's last scheduled chemo appointment.

Saturday, along with a celebration was a silent auction fundraiser to help pay for Gavin's medical bills and college.

The highlight of the day came from a little girl, Memphis Sherman, who presented a check to Gavin for more than $3,000 she raised.

A great day which is leading up to more excitement for Gavin.

"Get to go back to school next year in January and see my friends, I'm excited about that," Green said.  "I'm blessed to have many people love me and know about me...  It's really cool."

A testament to Gavin's courage is on his shirt, "I have cancer but cancer doesn't have me - help me win."
