Hudson police officer finds support as he battles cancer
Hudson Police Officer James Stys, the district’s school resource officer, was diagnosed with colon cancer in mid-November.
Stys’ cancer treatments are covered by insurance, but some of the treatments are quiet costly and must be paid for up front and reimbursement takes several weeks to process, according to Bergeron.
Tickets are $25 per person.
Proceeds from the benefit will assist Stys with medical expenses as well as with wages lost from the occasional days when he’s unable to make it into work.
Those efforts have included substantial fundraising and donations involving the Cops for Kids With Cancer foundation, according to local police officials.
Hudson police have raised and donated thousands of dollars to assist the Lowe family over the past year, and Stys helped organize several of the community events held in McKenzie’s honor.
“He’s just a great guy, one who is always so friendly and has such a wonderful way with the kids,” Cayot said.
