(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester community is rallying around well-known businessman Craig Cotten after his recent cancer diagnosis.

In late June, what felt like a cold turned out to be something much worse and Craig was diagnosed with kidney stones, pneumonia and leukemia. Because he’s self-employed his comic book shop had to be shut down until further notice and his friends and family started a gofundme to help.

"People have been just amazing. We’ve gotten so many messages from people, there’s a gofundme that a ton of people have donated and sent well wishes and messages, so I’ve been passing them along to him. They can’t wait for him to try and beat this and get back," said Craig’s sister.
