Colleagues Helping Sherman Officer Whose Wife Has Cancer

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- Friends are coming together to help a police officer and his family after learning that his wife is battling cancer.

Officers at the Sherman Police Department learned a few weeks ago that the wife of Detective Zachary Flores is very sick. According to Facebook postings, Courtney Flores has been undergoing treatments in Dallas for Stage 4 intestinal cancer. Fellow officers are organizing fundraisers at local restaurants.

"They have some really good family support as well as the members of the Police Association are supporting them really well, but they do need help with of course medical expenses because he's having to take a lot of time off as well as she," says Sherman Police Association President Jeremy Cox.

On Thursday, a portion of sales from all customers at Chick-fil-A at Sherman Town Center who mention the Police Association will go to the family. Another fundraiser is August 27 starting at 5 p.m. at La Mesa on Texoma Parkway.
