After having her first mammogram and with no family history of breast cancer!! Just hours before reporting for her shift as a Police Supervisor for the City of Trenton Police Department Sgt. Jamy Helton formerly Sgt Jamy Chaney, was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Not only is Jamy a Sgt. for the Trenton Police Department, where a lot of the community refers to her as Pocahontas, she is also the mother and step mother of 7 children one who is currently deployed in the United States Marine. Jamy has been with the TPD since 2001 after working for the Butler County Sheriff's Office, she was recognized for being the first female police officer for the city of Trenton, then later the first female police sergeant. During her service she served for 6 years as a Detective helping solve multiple crimes and receiving multiple recognition's for her dedication and service. As her husband and fellow police officer, I can not begin to explain the love that Jamy has for her career and her dedication to the community. With just 4 years until her retirement, this news has devastated the both of us and taken so much of the wind from her sails. So much time devoted and so close to reaching her goal of retiring honorably from the city she has served, to be halted from doing so much of what she loves, to spending days in the hospital after now two massive surgeries to remove the cancer then fight an infection. Jamy has been on the road to recovery and healing from her surgeries only to find out now that she will have to undergo chemotherapy. This after we have moved past so much and just started to get back on our feet has been another horrible attack on her motivation. Jamy was planning on returning to work prior to receiving this news and now with the possibility of have the next 8 or so weeks dedicated to having treatment, returning to work will be on hold for longer. Please help show your support for her as she fights this fight! After 21 years of service as a police officer, Jamy has never had to fight more than now. Please help her to stay the course and fight through this!
