DPS and volunteers host fundraiser in support of trooper battling cancer

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Friday State Troopers, DPS officials and volunteers rallied together to help one of their own.

State Trooper Chad Wilson was diagnosed with Leukemia in February of this year.

 Volunteers hosted a hamburger luncheon to help raise money for the family and their Relay for Life team.   

They've also been selling t-shirts and luminaries to raise funds.

Wilson has been traveling to a Houston hospital for treatment; organizers hope their efforts will take some financial burden off the family.    

"DPS family, they always come together when someone's in need, they're very generous they do everything they can to help each other," said Jessica Senn, volunteer.

DPS officials, fundraiser organizers and friends and family have a Relay for Life team and will participate in Wilson's honor on May 3rd.

For information on how to donate to the team, contact Jessica Senn at 936-4652482.
