Frank is in his early 40’s, and is a loving husband to his wife Jennifer and father of two young children Arianna 7 years old, and Elijah 6 years old. Frank Martin grew up on the eastside of Washington in the small town of Sunnyside. After high school, he graduated from Central Washington University then went on to become a Corrections Officer at the King County Jail. Soon after Frank was hired as a Police Officer with the City of Federal Way, WA where he has protected and served the citizens of Federal Way for over a decade. Frank needs your help…
For the last four years he has been assigned to the Traffic Division as a Motor Officer, where he sustained an injury while attending advanced police motorcycle training in July 2017. During treatment and recovery for the motorcycle injury it became obvious that something else was wrong. Frank was not getting better, which began the journey to determine the root cause of his significant pain that persisted. Unfortunately, Frank has been diagnosed with Stage IV colorectal (colon) cancer that has spread to his right hip. Stage IV is the most advanced stage of cancer. Frank continues to see his Oncologist to create a treatment plan to attack his cancer, with the goal of being a part of the Cancer Care Alliance in Seattle.
Frank and his family have weathered this journey privately with the support of family and close friends, until now. On behalf of Frank and his family, we are asking for much needed assistance from the community and our law enforcement family. Frank is doing everything he can to fight and completely beat this cancer. His family means everything to him. As a single income family, as Jennifer is a student in a nursing program, we ask you to donate all that you can and please share Frank’s story with everyone you know through every network you have and on all social media you use.
Please keep Frank in your thoughts and prayers, as he continues his journey to fight for his life.
