The Flying Aardvarks-USA is a social club of motorcycle enthusiasts is known for its benevolence in the community, and the group recently raised money for a family with a sick teen, KC Walton.

"This is his army everyone is there for him backing him we know we can beat this thing 100 percent," said his mother Jennifer Walton.

The benefit for 18-year-old KC Walton took place May 6 at Mitchell's Tavern in Milwaukee, including raffle tickets and silent auctions.

KC was diagnosed with stage 4 anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare form of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

"It was pretty shocking, we did not think anything like cancer. KC  has been just healthy his whole life. He was never on antibiotics or anything his whole life," Jennifer said.

The morning of the event, the Flying Aardvarks rode to KC's house in West Bend. A display of support that leaves KC's mom grateful.

"Humanity is still alive and people can come together and help people that they really don't even know,” she said. “This is just overwhelming."

And it's such actions that keep members of the Flying Aardvark Motorcycle Club revved up, and a family feeling hopeful.

"So much love and so much caring. It's really overwhelming it really is,” Jennifer said with a smile.
