CRAVEN COUNTY -

A local school hosted a charity basketball game Thursday to benefit an Airman battling cancer.

West Craven Middle School hosted a "West Side Pride" Charity Basketball Game Thursday afternoon. All proceeds are going to Leigh Nobles, who is suffering from leukemia.

Nobles, a 2007 graduate of West Craven High School, is an Airman First Class in the U.S. Airforce who was stationed in England. But he was diagnosed with leukemia after his annual physical.

His mother, Sheila Nobles, is an exceptional children teaching assistant at West Craven High School.
