May 15th Story

The GoFundMe campaign in honor of fallen Yarmouth Police K9 Sergeant Sean Gannon is now approaching $200,000.  It stood at $199,393 as of 5 p.m. Sunday, May 13th.

2,601 people have contributed to the campaign in the month since Sgt. Gannon was murdered while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.  His K9 partner, Nero, was seriously wounded in the same incident and is making a steady recovery.

With 2,601 individuals participating at an average donation of $76.66, , it's clear that this campaign was built by modest donations.  From reading the comments on the campaign page, one observes that donations were made from all across the USA and beyond.  

We would love to see a few more donations to bring this campaign past the $200,000 milestone.

Original Story

GoFundMe campaign has been launched for the family of slain Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon.  The campaign raised $3,655 of its $50,000 goal in the first 52 minutes it was active.

The campaign was launched today by Elizabeth Ambrosini.  The campaign description states:

As many of you already know, Officer Sean Gannon, an 8-year veteran of the YPD, was fatally shot while helping execute an arrest warrant. His beloved K-9, Nero, was also shot and is currently in surgery. We will post updates on K-9 Nero's status. At 32, Sean leaves behind his beloved wife, Dara and their 3 dogs, including K-9 Nero, Kira, and retired K-9, Thor - all of whom he loved immensely.

A couple things about Sean: he was the type of person who would go out of his way, completely above and beyond, to help anyone. He was funny, universally-liked...the list goes on.

It goes without saying that Dara has the emotional support of her Cape Cod family, her YPD family, and countless others. Please join in offering financial support after this horrific tragedy, so that her terrible loss is not compounded by financial burden.

Rest in peace, Officer Gannon. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers. We are in no way obligated to post or allow comments that our moderators deem inappropriate.
