Burger Benefit in Bossier City for officer’s son with bone cancer
The fight against cancer is tough enough on its own. But the financial burden can put a tremendous strain on families.

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The fight against cancer is tough enough on its own. But the financial burden can put a tremendous strain on families.

That was the idea behind a cookout now underway in Bossier City to help raise money for the son of Bossier City Police Officer George Fanning.

His son is currently going through chemotherapy in Baton Rouge to fight an aggressive form of bone cancer.

A statement released to the media explained that the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 39 and Local Union 645 are hosting a hamburger cookout from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in front of the Bossier City Police Department and Fire Department complex located at 620 Benton Road.

Organizers say donations will be accepted for the hamburger plates, with the money raised from the event helping ‘offset medical bills and any other out of pocket expenses.’
