On Sunday, February 10, 2019, Quinn was celebrating his 3rd birthday. The very next day, he became very ill and was admitted to Children's Hospital in Boston. Medical exams and tests resulted in the discovery of a large mass in Quinn's brain. In less than 24 hours, his family was rocked by the news no family wants to hear, Quinn had a brain tumor and was suffering from brain cancer.
On Monday, April 30th, over two dozen Quincy Police Officers shaved their head to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation and to show Quinn (dubbed The Mighty Quinn) that nobody fights alone! The event was held at The Corner Barbershop on Copeland Street, Quincy.
Officers, friends, and family raised over $25,000!
