Police Officer Travis Cossey

Anyone who knows Travis can agree that he has a heart of gold.  He is always willing to go above and beyond for anyone.  Travis has been on the Norfolk Police Department for six years, now serving as a Patrol Training Officer for many new recruits that are coming out of the academy. Prior to this, he served five years in the Marines as infantry. During that time, he has been deployed to Beirut, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

On Monday, August 26th, 2018, Travis Cossey had just completed a twelve-hour shift with his junior officer in training. He had started to feel bad the previous day but due to his dedication to his responsibilities, he just pushed forward.  Travis drove from the Norfolk Police Department’s first precinct to a local hospital near his home. Soon after being examined by the doctors, he was admitted into the hospital for stage 4 kidney failure. After further testing, doctors were able to diagnose Travis with IgA Nephropathy.

IgA nephropathy (Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy), also known as Berger’s disease, is a kidney disease that occurs when IgA deposits build up in the kidneys, causing inflammation that damages kidney tissues. IgA is an antibody—a protein made by the immune system to protect the body from foreign substances such as bacteria or viruses.
