Benefit for ailing Peru Police sergeant quickly approaching

Posted by wlpo on May 21, 2016

A man who swore to protect and help you now could use help from others.

A benefit is happening next Saturday at the La Salle Knights of Columbus Hall on behalf of Peru Police Sergeant Jason Brokaw. About three months ago, the 42-year-old started experiencing lower back and leg pain. He eventually went to a doctor who found lesions on his spine.

While he is home now, Brokaw has been getting treatment in Peoria for spreading paralysis caused by inflammation of his spinal cord. It’s a mystery as to what’s causing it.

There will be live music, raffles, food and drinks to help raise money for Brokaw and his family at next Saturday’s benefit. For tickets you can stop by or call the Peru Police Department.
