The benefit fish fry for Seymore Weathers turned out to be very successful. Over $7,000.00 was raised to help Weathers defray medical bills. that figure was after the expenses of putting on the event were paid. That money is  in addition to the accounts that have been set up at several area banks including FBT Bank and Mortgage and Heartland bank.  Money is still being collected in those accounts.

Weathers incurred monumental medical bills as the result of recent back surgery to remove a tumor on his spine. His spinal cord became bent and doctors didn't expect him to be able to walk again. However, Weathers has made remarkable gains toward a complete recovery.

Weathers has become well known in the area as the result of his work in photography with the Fordyce News Advocate.
