After learning that Big Phil’s wife Deb was battling an aggressive form of lung cancer, several of Big Phil’s friends from Alabama drove 800 miles to his hometown of La Farge, WI to visit him on June 23rd and hold a fundraiser screening of a rough cut of the I’m with Phil documentary.
A total of $1600 was raised at the screening in La Farge, and Big Phil was also presented with the $2126 raised for him at the Phil Campbell, AL screening, bringing the total to $3,726. We also got to visit Phil’s wife Deb, and speak with her. Sadly, Deb passed away on June 29th, not even a week after we left. Even though things didn’t turn out as we hoped, we know that our support for Big Phil meant a lot to him and his family. We just want him to know that we care about him, and our town will always be there for him.
