Anthony Passalacqua has been a respected Law Enforcement Officer for over 15 years and a long time board member of the NYS Fraternal Order of Police. He is also an Instructor at Frontline Training Center in Bohemia NY where he dedicates his time training not only his fellow officers on multiple life saving topics, but civilians and community members as well. Anthony has been instrumental in bringing the Opioid Overdose Prevention Training program (Narcan) to many Suffolk county communities where he teaches the administration of Narcan for free and on his own time. Anthony is passionate in raising awareness about sensitive topics such as Response to Active Shooters, Anti-Bullying in Schools, Refuse to be a victim, CPR, Fire / EMS training and numerous other life saving courses. He is always spending his time helping others. Always giving and never taking. So in his time of need we ask for everyone to come together to help him out as he battles a demon know as malignant brain cancer.
Having already undergone a successful Craniotomy to remove pieces of a developed Oligodendroglioma (a primary Glial Brain Tumor). Anthony was out of work recovering, which left him without any sick time on his job as a law enforcement officer. This means he will no longer be getting paid for being out sick. He has a wife and 2 children and also takes care of his 2 grand children. He also has a mortgage to pay. His fight unfortunately is not over.
Anthony is only 46 and is about to face the battle of his life as he gets ready to undergo 6 weeks of Radiation, and 6 months of chemotherapy which will undoubtedly keep him out of work for a significant amount of time. Please find it in your hearts to assist Anthony and his family as they struggle thru this very trying time. Thank you
