GLIRC AND DAVID LERNER ASSOCIATES PRESENT CHECK AT FUNDRAISER FOR NASSAU COUNTY POLICE OFFICER JOHN CARNEY

Thanks to the continuing success of the David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5K Run, we were able to take part in a substantial way in the fundraiser held for Nassau County Police Officer John Carney on May 30th.

Officer Carney has been suffering from debilitating health issues associated with Lyme Disease, and has also been diagnosed with Mast Cell Syndrome, an auto-immune condition triggered by Lyme Disease. He has been battling these health issues for the past three years, suffering from dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue and extreme abdominal pain. Officer Carney is currently seeking treatment in Florida for the next three months, with his family alongside him. This treatment is not covered by medical insurance and all costs are out of pocket to the Carney family.

The fundraiser, held at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, was absolutely packed, and we were quite pleased to do our share by presenting a check in the amount of $2500 from the GLIRC/David Lerner Associates Police Crisis Fund. The $2500 donation, and all the donations that we make to police officers and their familIes in time of need, are funded by the David Lerner Associates Police Appreciation 5K Run.
