DANVILLE, Ill. (WAND) -- Danville's football coach Marcus Forrest was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in August and ever since then, his community has stepped up to support him.

He and his wife Tabatha started a Facebook titled "#Heart4Caoch" and they say they received an overwhelming amount of love from people.

Coach Forrest has been the Vikings head coach since 2018. He is currently back and forth from Danville to Chicago for medical testing.

Doctors say that he will eventually need a heart transplant, but he's not letting that keep him down he is extremely optimistic about his future.
