HOLBROOK AND SELDEN, NY — Members of the Suffolk County Police Sixth Precinct "Cops Who Care" presented a $5,000 check to the Holbrook family of a child with cancer.
Brody Kuenzler, 9, who is Autistic, was diagnosed in March with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. His treatment included chemotherapy and radiation, some of which required travel from Holbrook to New Jersey.
The generous donation came from money raised at the annual Sixth Precinct Cops Who Care Golf Outing. Police said the money will help greatly because Brody’s mother had to quit her job because of his illness, decreasing the family’s income while their expenses continue to increase.
Brody and his parents, Theresa and Bob, were joined by Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron and Sixth Precinct Cops Who Care.
The check presentation occurred at the Suffolk County Police Sixth Precinct, 400 Route 25, Selden. While at the precinct, Brody has a hands-on tour.
