Bethel Police Department recently learned that the 12 year old daughter of one of their Detectives has been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer.
Detective Frank O'Farrell has been with the Department for more than a decade and served in the Army Reserves for 25 years. The Bronze Star recipient was deployed to Iraq twice and last year returned from a year-long deployment in Somalia, Africa.
In an effort to raise funds and awareness for Detective O'Farrell's daughter, Maddie, Bethel Police Department has partnered with the Scotty Fund and the veteran owned company Grunt Style to sell T-shirts. A portion of every shirt sold will go to the O'Farrell family to help pay for medical and other expenses.
The Bethel Police Department will also be hosting a Blood drive in honor of Maddie. The Blood drive will be held on Monday, March 4th from 8am-1:15 at the Police Station Training Room on Judd Avenue. For an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and use Sponsor Code: BethelPD.
