10-1 Benefit

Officer James "Jimmy" Cordero from the 25th District was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma cancer on February 14, 2008. He was off work and being treated for it until September of 2008. On January 7, 2009 he had surgery to have a tumor removed, but in May of 2009 he was told the tumor was back. Jimmy's been off work since August 5, 2009. He's been on disability and has a large amount of medical bills piling up. Please show your support for one of our own.

The benefit will be held down at FOP Hall (1412 W. Washington) on Friday, June 25, 2010 from 6 to 11 pm.

This is a wonderful Blog and I check back often for new entries.
I would think that a post such as this one should be closed for comments and just made as advertising this worthy cause.
Just my thoughts as most benefit posts on brother blogs are in fact that way.

Is Anne in 025 a professional arm twister for benefit cash? Seems that's her main job in 025.
