Mass. officers visit boy, 2, with brain cancer
Sandra Cordero says her son, Edison, loves the police, and she hoped just one officer would visit their home before patrol cars filled her street
CHELSEA, Mass. — Police in a Massachusetts town paid a special visit to their number one fan — a 2-year-old boy battling brain cancer.
Sandra Cordero says her son, Edison, loves the police. She says she went to the Chelsea Police Department on Sunday hoping just one officer would stop by their home.
Patrol cars filled her street just a few minutes later. Cordero says the entire day shift showed up to bring Edison gifts.
Police officers let Edison sit in a cruiser and talk over the radio.
WBZ-TV reports Edison's father Frank Cordero thanked the officers, saying his son was "so happy" when they showed up.
The entire Day Shift showed up in force to drop off some gifts that they bought and to wish him and his family well. Strong little boy!!! pic.twitter.com/lxeGUEmTWk— Chief Brian Kyes (@ChiefKyes) November 12, 2017
