Officer Hogan aims to raise $6,000 to fight cancer

The following plea seeking support for his longtime effort in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) is from Officer Mike Hogan of the Arlington Police Department. Officer Mike Hogan

This August, I am proud to say, that I will have the privilege of riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge for the 12th time as a member of the Arlington Angels Team. I will be riding for my wife, Nancy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer 11 years ago and received treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

I now know firsthand how important it is to raise money for Dana Farber, so they can continue their research for life-saving cancer treatments. I will also be riding for my sister-in-law Colleen Lombard, who also received treatment for breast cancer at Dana Farber.

During this ride and my training, I will also be riding in Honor of Catherine Malatesta who lost her courageous battle with cancer and was a shining star in our community and her memory continues on through her scholarship fund. #cattitude! I will also be riding for Patrick Doherty and my friend Lt. Dan Kelly. Both lost battles to this horrible disease.

Aims to raise $6,000

Part of the PMC is the commitment to raise $6,000 -- to help fight the battle against cancer. Cancer is a devastating disease that, unfortunately, affects each of us at some point in our lives.

I would like to ask for a donation at this time to meet my fund-raising goal. Anything is greatly appreciated.

As of last year, the total I have raised for Dana Farber over my years doing the PMC is $166,000 -- all thanks to you. But Dana Farber needs this money to continue the fight against cancer. Please click on the link below to make an online donation.

Alternatively, you can send a check directly to me (address below) payable to PMC/Jimmy Fund. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to the Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute to help all of its patients with clinical care and cancer research.

Donate and save on your car insurance too!

If you have Commerce/Mapfre insurance, you can donate $50 to the PanMass challenge and save 5% on your annual car insurance bill. With the new rate increases this year, this should still be a win for most people AND it's a definite win for cancer research!
