Cops for Kids with Cancer to Award Donation to 4-Month-Old Taunton Girl

TAUNTON — Police Chief Edward Walsh is pleased to report that Cops for Kids with Cancer will present a local 4-month-old girl and her family with a $5,000 donation at the Taunton Police Station on Monday.

WHO:

  • Taunton Police
  • Cops for Kids with Cancer
  • 4-month-old Holly Rodrigues and her family

WHEN:

Monday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m.

WHERE:

Taunton Police Department, 23 Summer St.

WHAT:

Holly Rodrigues and her family will be presented with a $5,000 donation from Cops for Kids With Cancer on Monday to help cover the costs associated with her cancer treatment.

Holly was diagnosed in January with bilateral retinoblastoma. Since her diagnosis, she has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy.

The Taunton Police Department sponsored the Rodrigues family’s application to Cops for Kids with Cancer earlier this winter.

“It is the philosophy of the Taunton Police Department to serve our community and that service can be achieved though many paths,” Chief Walsh said. “It has been our privilege to sponsor this application and continue to work with the Rodrigues family to assist them with all of their needs.”

A GoFundMe page for Holly’s medical expenses can also be found at ie.gofundme.com/baby-holly039s-medical-expenses.
