Nashua police donate $5,000 to NH teen battling rare cancer
NASHUA — Cops for Kids with Cancer, along with the Nashua Police Department, has presented a donation to a young girl battling cancer.
Aaliyah Davis, 14, was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer that spread to her knee and lungs earlier this year.
Members of the Nashua PD learned of the girl’s cancer diagnosis through social media and were moved by her situation.
Officers then acted to sponsor her through The Cops for Kids with Cancer application process, and it was granted.
On Wednesday Davis and her mother were given a $5,000 check to help with expenses during her treatment.
Davis has been going through chemotherapy for the last few months. She will have surgery on her knee and then doctors will continue to address issues with her lungs on Nov. 8, NewHampshire.com reported.
Back in August, Girls Inc. of New Hampshire supported Davis through a lemonade fundraiser.
A GoFundMe account has also been set up for Davis to help with the costs that come along with battling cancer. The $10,000 goal has been reached, but donations are still being accepted.
