In March 2011, Gisele Vander May, daughter of Denise and Chicago Police Officer Brian Vander Mey, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Friends and family are uniting behind them and to this effort the Gisele Vander Mey’s Fight Against Leukemia Fund has been established to help offset the mounting medical bills.
Tax deductable donations can be made to the Gisele Vander Mey’s Fight Against Leukemia Fund at either of the branches of the Chicago Patrolman’s Federal Credit Unions. The main branch is located at 1407 W. Washington Blvd., Chicago, Il 60607 and a satellite branch is located on the south side at 111th and California.
A benefit is also planned for August 12th 2011 at the F.O.P. Hall located at 1412 W. Washington Blvd. The hours of this event will be 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. and ticket will be $25.00. There will be live entertainment and raffles held.
