ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Last week KMOX News told you how a former professional singer-turned-pastor was warming up for a performance to help a family in need.

Now we’ve learned that weekend opera benefit by Harvest Bible Chapel’s Michael Sust raised $12,000 to help Rob and Laura Kee.

Laura is 7 months pregnant and has colon cancer.  Sust  says doctors will try to save both mother and child this week. 

“It’s the faith that they have that enables to them to really cope with this difficult situation,” says Sust.

Sust says the money being raised by the church comes at a critical time.  Laura’s husband Rob lost his job last Friday.
