BOSTON (WHDH) - A young boy battling leukemia rode in style to school in East Boston Tuesday thanks to the Boston Police Department.
Capt. Kelley McCormick and officers assigned to District A-7 escorted the first-grade student to East Boston Central Catholic after being approached by faculty and staff.
Boston police say the request “left a first-grader feeling like a million bucks and our officers ever richer.”
Officers extended their heartfelt gesture to the boy and his family, saying, “we’re always here to lend a helping hand or ride to school.”
