A Grand Forks family is getting some help from the country music channel CMT.

Michael Ullrich's mother-in-law entered him in the channel's "Lend a Hand To A Family man" sweepstakes and he was chosen among the many entrants from around the nation.

The prize: a year's worth of rent paid.

On Tuesday, the Ullrich family got that prize, delivered personally to their apartment from country music star Craig Campbell.

The Ullrich family has had the challenge of taking care of their son who was diagnosed with leukemia.

"It'll give us a little time for me to progress a little more in my job. We'll be able to afford or to buy a place or continue living here," Michael Ullrich said.
