Police Wives Donate To Those In Need

SPOKANE, Wash. - JoLynn Chastain's house is filled with Star Wars memorabilia, pictures of Gonzaga Basketball and letters of support for her son Brandon. Brandon is fighting a losing battle with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma a form of cancer that has attacked him twice before. 

Brandon was originally diagnosed with a tumor in 2004, relapsed in 2007, and after beating it twice JoLynn noticed the symptoms a third time. "When he had his MRI last November it (the tumor) was as big as it has ever been." This battle was brought to the public's attention at the most recent Coaches Vs. Cancer game at Gonzaga University. 
 
That was where a new organization found Brandon's story. "We are helping someone who has taken a story that is unfathomable to most with a child battling a terminal disease and making it more about courage and strength." said Stephanie Dahle, a member of Spouses Offering Support. Spouses Offering Support is a group of Spokane Police officer's spouses who have dedicated their time to helping people in the community.  

The group dropped off about eight large crates of donations to the family early Wednesday morning in hopes it will help them through this difficult time. "This is the first time that we've had an opportunity to do this, and we hope that the community sees that we are all helping."
 
JoLynn says support like this has restored her faith in humanity. "I'm not speechless very often but it helps. I think all the love and support will help get me through."
