George Bourgeois, a long-time FOP member, has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and needs our help.

Brother Bourgeois, who received his law degree while working at NOPD, retired as a Police Captain, and has been working as an Assistant District Attorney on Leon Cannizzaro’s staff.

In a recent email George informs us that he has received 20 units of blood and platelets, and there will be more transfusions in his future.  Overall, George says he is feeling good and his treatments are going better than expected.

A blood replacement drive has been arranged for Thursday, March 22, 2012, from 9AM-3PM, at One Shell Square (see attached flyer).  We urge all of our members to get over there and assist our brother in his time of need.

The New Orleans Blood Center will also accept donations at any local Blood Center.  Call (504) 887-2833to make an appointment.  Make sure you let them know the donation is for “George Bourgeois of Metairie”.

Most importantly, lets all of us keep George and his family in our thoughts and in our prayers.
