Ben Dunnam is one of the most friendly, caring, and kindhearted people you will ever meet. He was born and raised in Mobile and attended Theodore High School. He and his wife Haley have a four year old son and a new baby girl. Ben was diagnosed with Stage lV colon cancer on April 12, 2018. (he was only 28 years old at this time) This news comes at Bens favorite time of the year when the weather starts warming up enough to start fishing. Typically, he would be gearing up for weekend snapper fishing trips with family and friends. Instead, he will begin his journey to battle cancer.
With surgery and treatment costs, as well as a new baby coming soon, friends and family of Ben and Haley are putting on a drawdown, multiple raffles and an auction the night of to raise funds to support them during this difficult time.
There are two events coming up to support Ben's Battle.
1. There will be a Dauphin Island Red Snapper Shootout to support Ben's battle on June 2, 2018. $100/boat and the largest red snapper wins!
