"He didn't go alone, you know we were there with him," said his son, Cole.
Weeks after his father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Cole Van Zandt found a way to help his family with "Fight the Fight." Though Les died Christmas day, the family felt it was still important to go on with the event.
"Dad had talked about how fun it would've been, or it was going to be to go," said Cole.
Though the event was originally set up to help Cole and his family pay for the medical expenses, now he simply just wants to give back.
"We just felt like we could go ahead and go on with the fundraiser and donate all the proceeds to the American Cancer Society," he explained.
Not only is it what his dad would've wanted, Cole now wants to help other families fighting cancer.
"Any person that has a family member that may be suffering from cancer, now I know how that feels. You know, it feels good to be able to help somebody," Cole said.
And hoping to one day set up a fund in his father's memory to help find the cure to pancreatic cancer.
