LIVONIA, Mich. -- A dying man's effort to raise money for his family seems to be paying off.

Ken Borskey of Livonia, Mich. took a job with Uber, after being diagnosed with stage four cancer. Doctors say he has only months to live.

Recently, the 69-year old told a passenger about his situation, and that he was driving in hopes of having something to leave for his daughter and two grandchildren.

Roland Gainer, a 22-year-old, was so touched, he set up a GoFundMe campaign for Borskey.

The fund has raised more than $97,000 in just four days. The goal was $95,000.
