Boston PD Rally Around Boy Battling Cancer

May 22, 2017

Boston PD is helping 6-year-old Devin Suau face a life-threatening disease with strength and courage.
Devin has an inoperable brain tumor with no known cure—a type of pediatric cancer known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG.

The police departments of Boston and Framingham, Massachusetts have rallied around Devin.
Last month, Devin represented the department in South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. He rode in a SWAT vehicle, waving to the crowd from the turret and wearing an officer’s cap on his head.
Despite his honorary status as a police commissioner, Devin’s red sneakers are not part of the Boston Police Department’s official uniform. They’re the preferred footwear of a precocious boy whose favorite things include chocolate, ice cream and hanging out with police.
