FULTON, NY – There will be a fundraiser next month for Ed Hoffman, a retired Fulton police officer.
On July 17, Ed was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.
The aggressive cancer has quickly spread into his liver and lymph nodes.
In early August, Ed began receiving chemotherapy treatments to reduce the size of his tumors.
Ed has been unable to work since June 25. However, the medical bills continue to mount.
The fundraiser, an all-you-can-eat chicken and pasta dinner, will be held at Thunder Island Oasis, 21 Wilcox Road, Fulton, on Oct. 13 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Tickets are $10 per ticket (under 5 eat free).
Advance sale tickets available at: Fulton Police Department, Thunder Island and B&T Sport Shop.
There will be door prizes, entertainment, raffles and a cash bar.
Ed proudly served 22 years as a member of the Fulton Police Department, retiring in 1994.
He still has roots in the Fulton area with many close friends and family members.
Ed recently got married. He has three grown children and five grandchildren.
He has lived in Sarasota, Florida, for the past 16 years as a self-employed contractor.
This fundraiser is being held in order to help Ed pay for the expensive chemotherapy treatments and day-to-day expenses while he is out of work.
Help us help Ed battle this deadly disease!
