Making a Difference: Cops for Kids with Cancer Presents Check to Family of 3-year-old Battling Leukemia

Yesterday morning, Tuesday, May 15, 2018, retired Boston Police Captain Paul Ivans and officers from District A-1 (Downtown) and District A-15 (Charlestown) presented three-year-old Jonathan McCollum, Jr. and his parents with a generous check from Cops for Kids with Cancer at the District A-15 Neighborhood Police Station. And of course, little Jonathan, who has been fighting Leukemia, was thrilled to receive the officers’ gifts of toys and trucks!

Since the inception of CFKWC in 2008, the organization has provided the families of children who have cancer with over 2.5 million dollars, and it continues, day-in and day-out, to raise money to assist in donating funds for treatment and other needs that these families may encounter during their fight against this disease.
