A central Nebraska farmer who is being treated for lung cancer says he was amazed by the nearly 100 people who gathered to harvest his soybean crop.

Bernard Cuba of Genoa returned home Friday after a week of radiation treatment in Omaha and watched as dozens of people completed the harvest. They came from around the region and made use of 18 combines, 24 auger wagons and 30 trucks.

It took them about four hours to clear 600 acres of soybeans from seven fields. Cuba's son had already harvested about 600 acres of corn.

Cuba tells the Columbus Telegram that "words can't explain it."

Bob Konwinski organized the event with his wife Michelle. He called it "just a neighborly thing."
