The Lexington native and member of the Georgetown College baseball team is battling a rare form of leukemia.

The fundraiser is at 'Extreme Pizza,' which is located in the old Kroger Plaza, next to La Antiqua in Georgetown.

The restaurant, which is owned by a former Georgetown College employee, is donating 10-percent of each bill to the Martin family to help with medical bills.

The sophomore is being treated at UK Hospital and is reportedly doing very well, according to a release from the school.
