Veterinarians said the treatment has a 90 percent chance of successfully putting the cancer in complete remission, but because it’s unlikely Frank will return to police duty, it’s been unclear who would pay for the treatment.
Belliveau calls the generosity of the town’s residents “unbelievable.”MORE NEWS: Speed-Loving Los Gatos Teen Competing In Formula 4 US Championship In Texas
