Pensacola Police Department Officer Stephen Grogan has been in a battle with brain cancer for almost two years. Recently, the outlook has changed. Please donate today to help Officer Grogan, his wife, and children.
Pensacola Police Officer and Combat Marine Veteran Stephen Grogan needs our help. Please read his story below.
Officer Stephen Grogan is fighting a battle for his life! Stephen was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) in July of 2017 after complaining of headaches.
Stephen was able to have a successful total resection of his tumor followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy at the beginning of this battle. Stephen's last MRI on 1/07/2019 found a new tumor on his brain. The tumor is located inside his corpus callosum in both left and right hemispheres of his brain. Stephen has been given a diagnosis of less than a year to live. Due to the location of his tumor he is not eligible for surgery or a gamma knife procedure and now has to depend on a clinical trial to save his life.
Stephen is a US Marine Combat Veteran (2007 - 2014), Pensacola Police Officer (2016 - Present) and most importantly a husband and father. Stephen is married to the love of his life, who is also a Combat Marine Veteran (2007 - 2014), and is studying to become a Registered Nurse. The Grogan's also have two adorable little boys under five years of age.
Since hearing this news they are worried about finances. They are applying for clinical trials located at Duke University in North Carolina, but are worried about the costs they will incur. They also would like to take a family trip to Disney World to make lasting memories.
The Grogan family deserves to not worry about finances and to be able to fight this disease, accompanied with being able to enjoy the precious moments they have left.
Stephen and his wife, have both put their lives on the line and fought for our country. Stephen continues to serve the community by being a local police officer. Stephen has given so much and it is now our turn to give to him and his family.
