Stillwater and St. Paul Police officers to host special benefit to support officer’s family, raise awareness for HELLP
The St. Paul Police Federation and the Stillwater Police Department are hosting a benefit in honor of a family with ties to both departments. The son of officers Brienne and Andy Heroux was born with part of his bladder outside his body. On September 13, two weeks after giving birth, Brienne died from complications of HELLP, a rare syndrome that affects pregnant women.
To help officer Heroux and his son, Leland, the St. Paul Federation and members of the Stillwater Police Department are hosting a unique event. Money raised will help pay for Leland’s ongoing medical expenses and help raise awareness about HELLP. Tickets to the benefit cost $20 each and include family-friendly activities, live music, a silent auction, and food.
