ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WMAR) - The Annapolis Police Department is standing united for one of its own battling breast cancer.
Officer Brittany Artigues was recently diagnosed and is currently recovering from surgery.
In a show of support, the men and woman in blue are doing something special for Officer Artigues. The men are not shaving and the woman are sporting blue and pink nail polish the entire month of May.
Each of the participants will also donate $30 to Officer Artigues, who is also in the army reserve.
"Brittany is married to one of our other officer, George Artiques, and she's also a mother with two young children," said Sgt. Amy Miguez. "We started this fundraiser to help her and her family during this time that she is going to be out of work and needs some support from us."
The department is selling a special Annapolis Police Department breast cancer T-shirt, which some officers will wear on duty throughout the month. The T-shirt is $20 and all proceeds go to the Artigues family. To place an order, contact Sgt. Nicole Vaden at 410-268-9000 or by email: email@example.com. Advance sales will end May 7.
