NAUGATUCK, Conn. — She collapsed next to her patrol car in August 2011 in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Doctors found cancer in her lungs and brain. They told her she had four months to live. The Naugatuck Police Department held fundraisers and held its breath.
A year and a half later, lighted police cars escorted Officer Danielle Parady down Spring Street for her first day back at work.
