Family and neighbors pull together to keep 1 farm family's dream alive. November 10th, Matt Fischer was involved in a very serious farm accident, losing both his arm and leg.

Thanks to overwhelming community support, Matt has no plans of getting out of the ranching business. Now half of Matt's cows live at his in-laws, while the other half are spending the winter at a nearby neighbors house.

Matt says the community support has been overwhelming.

Matt Fischer, rancher involved in farming accident said, "Unbelievable. There's no words to explain it. The amount of help and support. Can't explain, just no words to explain all the help and how people pull together. It's wonderful."

A benefit is being held at the Mercer Community Center this Saturday for Matt and Becky.
