A petition on Change.org is seeking to convince the Monroe Police Department to take back an officer who beat brain cancer. Monroe Officer Andrew Wall was diagnosed with terminal stage four Glioblastoma brain cancer in September of 2015, but through a clinical trial, is on the mend.
He has medical clearance notes from the Clinical Director at Center for Neuro-Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Wall has been an officer for over 20 years.
The petition has been signed by nearly 6,000 people.
Monroe Representative JP Sredzinski told organizers that he's been following the situation and reached out to Chief John Salvatore. As a State Representative, Sredzinski does not have direct authority over the operation of the Town of Monroe or its police department, but told the family that he will do his best to find out what the status is on this situation.
