CATO Fundraiser for Liam

The California Association of Tactical Officers (CATO) is a tight-knit community of law enforcement professionals dedicated to service. What makes this community great is our care for one another, especially when times are tough. Right now, there is a member of our community, Sergeant Romel Cuellar and his family, who needs our help.  A friend of the Cueller family started a Go Fund Me page already, however, CATO created this separate page because we were contacted by an anonymous donor who has agreed to match what the CATO team raises! At the conclusion of the fundraiser, our efforts will be matched by the donor, and we will bring a check to the family.

The reason for this fundraiser is that Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Sergeant Romel Cuellar’s youngest child Liam is battling B-cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. As you can imagine, this means a lot of time off from work, travel, and all of the expenses that go with it. This is where his LE family comes in to keep up the fight! Liam is currently receiving care at a children’s hospital in the Bay Area, but treatment may last an estimated 2-3 years. To help ease the tremendous financial burden on this family, we hope everyone will come together and donate what they can. Money raised will go towards medical bills, lodging, and travel for Liam’s procedures and treatments.
