PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - The Chesapeake man who traveled to New York City for a life saving operation is home.
WAVY first told you about Jonathan Derrick a few weeks ago, when his insurance company wouldn't approve a surgery in New York. After we got involved, Derrick's insurance decided to cover the costs, and we followed him on his journey .
Saturday, his friends and family raised money in Portsmouth. It will be used to cover the costs of fighting cancer. Dance groups from across the area performed at the event.

"Everything went good. The doctor said everything was great and they got all the cancer out. The only thing we are working on now is the liver cancer which a hepatic pump is pumping chemo to my liver now but everything they have done is healing up good. Getting better day by day. I'm doing great. Starting to get a little bit of strength back, starting to eat again, and it's going to be a hard bounce back but I got it," said Derrick.
Doctors say there are no signs of cancer in Jonathan's body. He will still have to make several trips back to New York for check ups.
