Le Mars Police organized a benefit fundraiser for one of their own.
Declynn Cody is the 5-year old daughter of Chad and Wendy Cody. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer late last year, and is undergoing a one year program of chemo and radiation treatments. Chad Cody has taken a year off from work to help Declynn through her treatments.
Declynn’s mom, Wendy, is office manager at the Le Mars Police Department.
Police Chief Kevin Vande Vegte says they want to relieve some of the pressure on the family as they deal with Declynn’s cancer. Officer Bob Rohmiller helped organize the fundraiser.
All proceeds will go to defraying expenses for the Cody family.
