Police From Massachusetts Helping Rustburg Boy Fighting Cancer by Selling Ornaments

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA – Over a year ago, 250 police, fire and EMS crews from Massachusetts jumped in their vehicles on December 20, 2012 and drove hours to Lynchburg because they heard about Nathan Norman.

The Rustburg boy was fighting a very aggressive brain tumor and his family put up the Christmas tree that September to cheer him up.

Word of his cancer fighting Christmas spirit spread like wildfire.

Nathan is still fighting today and he's got a lot of hard days ahead, even a trip to Duke this week to see if his tumors are growing.

The men and women from Massachusetts are still showing their support.

Officer Wren Maddox with the Dracut, MA Police Department was in that convoy in December 2012.

She was so touched by Nathan and his family that she wanted to help raise money for their pediatric cancer research fund called Hope 4 Tomorrow.

Maddox recently designed an ornament out of pocket and in just days the first 250 will be ready.

She hopes to raise a lot of money and deliver a check to the Normans during National Police Week this May.

"To have a little boy who is literally in the fight for his life to ask for a small consideration from us, and to call us his heroes, it really touched something in me as an officer and a mother," Maddox said.
