Fundraiser for Monroe Officer battling cancer

MONROE, La. - A fundraiser is being held for a Monroe Police officer who is battling cancer.

Captain Kenneth Hancock is a 29 ½ yr. veteran of the Monroe Police Department. Earlier this year he was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, also known as Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), and is the most aggressive cancer that begins within the brain.

Employees of the Monroe Police Department in association with Monroe Police Union Local 81 and with the assistance of Catfish Charlie’s, will be conducting a fundraiser on June 14th, 2018 to raise funds to assist Capt. Hancock and his family to cover medical and personal expenses incurred during his battle with cancer.

Anyone coming in and ordering at the Catfish Charlie’s location at 2329 Louisville in Monroe or at the 4015 Sterlington Rd. location on June 14, 2018, and says they are there for the Ken Hancock Fundraiser, a portion of the proceeds of the sale of that meal goes to assist Capt. Hancock and his family.

This is ALL DAY during regular business hours.

Members of the MPD Hancock Fundraiser Committee will be waiting/busing tables on the same day from 4pm-8pm.
