Walter Greene – CT State Trooper

On June 30, 2016, our military veteran and law enforcement brother, Walter Greene, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.  He is 1 of 67 in the US with this extremely rare form of cancer.  There are less than 100 people in the world with Kras 1 Wild Colorectal Cancer, Stage IV.  The chemotherapy he is undergoing is called Cetuximab and he is following a 5-FU Toxicity treatment method. Walter has undergone several surgeries and still requires several more chemo treatments; unfortunately, the end result is still uncertain. Since his diagnosis, Walter has not been able to work causing his medical and house bills to overwhelm him and his family.

Walter has been a Connecticut State Trooper for approximately 27 years and has dedicated 4 years to the United States Marines as a Scout Sniper.  He has trained many state and local police officers to become certified police motorcycle operators.  He has always gone the extra mile to support and train any motor cop who was looking to fulfill their dreams.  Walter is an active, talented rider and well respected in the police motorcycle community at both state and local levels.  He has helped organize many charity rides, assisted other agencies with their motorcycle needs, and has been an important part of Special Olympics.  Walter has always stepped up to the plate.

Currently Walter is in need of our moral, spiritual and financial support.  Please help pay it forward and support Walter in his time of need.  Walter is a proud United States Marine and State Trooper, who will not give up without a fight.  Let’s step up and show our appreciation and support to our military veteran and law enforcement brother.  Oohrah!
Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.
