Roanoke film festival and bike ride aimed to help local doctor

A film festival and bike ride in the star city is aimed at helping a local doctor. 

Doctor David Kilmer has battled three cancers, and is now receiving treatments for complications because of a surgery. The film festival kicks off Thursday with movies showing at the 16 west market place, and a bike ride on doctor Kilmer's favorite trails. 

A fundraiser on Sunday will also help pay for medical bills which could be about $1.2 million. 

"To have the support of everybody in the community come out and help with this fundraiser, I can't even express how much it means to us. It gives us the strength to carry on, when I do not think we could have the strength otherwise," says Doctor Susan Kilmer.
