NORTHAMP­TON, PA.» A man go­ing through treat­ment for colon can­cer won a pizza par­lor’s raf­fle for a year of free pies and do­nated his prize to a lo­cal food bank.

Thirty-six-year-old Josh Ka­trick of Northamp­ton had just com­pleted his eighth round of chemo­ther­apy when he learned that he was the win­ner of his fa­vorite neigh­bor­hood restau­rant’s con­test.

After hear­ing of Ka­trick’s plans to do­nate the pizza to the Northamp­ton Food Bank, the own­ers of Mario’s Pizza de­cided to dou­ble down and of­fer the prize to him and the food bank.

Ka­trick says he’s been get­ting so much from fam­ily, friends and strangers in the past few months that he wanted to give back to those who could use the pizza more.

Roughly 1,200 peo­ple en­tered the con­test. The As­so­ci­ated Press
