To our Cambridge Police Department Law Enforcement Family, Professional Colleagues, Friends and supporters:
Representing all members of the Special Investigations Unit, we are writing to ask for your support to assist one of our brothers and his family during a trying time as he battles Prostate Cancer. Detective Steve Edwards, a member of the Cambridge Police Department for over 32 years, has been unable to be with us protecting and serving our community in his assignment as a Special Investigations Unit Detective due to his illness. Prostate Cancer is the second most common cancer in the world for males that is estimated to impact 1 in every 7 males during their lifetime.
Steve, his wife Sonia and their two young children (Stephen Jr. and Shelbi) have endured a lot during the various phases of Steve’s diagnosis, surgery and treatment over the last couple years very quietly.
Many, if not all of us, either know someone personal or an acquaintance that has been effected by an illness and know how it creates a strain on the mind, body and finances.
With the mindset of family coming together to offer our support and comfort, we are hosting a fundraiser to support Steve and his family on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 6PM-12AM at Anthony’s Function Facility located at 105 Canal Street in Malden, MA. A great evening is planned with a lavish dinner buffet, cash bar, live entertainment to include comedians and DJ Dave Betz of “Arresting Sounds”, raffles and more. The ticket donation in advance of the event will be $30.00 or you can reserve a table of 10 for $300. You can order your tickets in advance directly on the “Night for Stevie” Eventbrite page.
If you are unable to attend, we are also encouraging friends, family and supporters to make a monetary donation on the “Support for Stevie” GoFundMe page.
Please consider attending, donating, volunteering or sharing this information with your contacts and associations to assist one of our own. Any small token of support will go a long way to helping and lifting Steve and his beautiful family’s spirits.
