Cape May County police raise funds to help local man through No-Shave November Campaign


This November Police Officers across the Nation, including those from Cape May County participated in the No-Shave November Campaign.

The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free and donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming, to educate cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting this battle.

The members of the Cape May County Chiefs of Police Association, collectively chose to support a local resident and member of the United States Army National Guard, 253rd Transportation Company; Richard Burrows. This past August Richard was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor, defined as a grade 3 Alaplastic Oligodendroglioma, which required a craniotomy to remove a 6cm mass, approximately the size of a golf ball from his frontal lobe.

Richard is required to travel daily to the Perlemen Center in Philadelphia for treatments. Therefore, the men and women of the law enforcement agencies of Cape May County, and the members of the Cape May County Chiefs of Police Association, are proud to present a check to the Burrows Family in the amount of $17,265.00. We hope that these funds will help offset the costs of the daily travel expenses of gas, tolls and food while traveling for treatment.

We wish Richard and his family the best of luck with his continued fight against cancer.

Thank you to all that donated and supported the No-Shave November program, wherever you are!

As we proceed into the holiday season, please keep all those battling this horrible disease, including Richard Burrows, in your thoughts and prayers.

On behalf of all law enforcement officers in Cape May County, we hope you have a safe, joyous and peaceful holiday season.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Feliz Navidad and Happy New Year to you and your families.

Please be safe!
