The DQ, 820 Kenhorst Plaza (Routes 724 & 625), will host a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Saturday.
The menu will include pancakes, bacon, bananas, smoothies and coffee.
The cost is $7 for adults; $5 for children/students, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Bill Richards, said Hamid Chaudhry, the DQ Kenhorst owner.
Richards, 23, was diagnosed in March with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer that has since spread to his lungs and jaw. He is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant in October.
In the meantime, Richards is just taking it day by day, promising not to go down without a fight.
"I see it more now as a challenge than I do something I am scared of. It is not something that I am just going to die from. It is something that I can beat," Richards said.
The Fightin Phils held a blood drive in Richards' name at FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday. The team will do so again on Sept. 3.
