Friends and colleagues of NYPD Lt. Christopher Pupo, who died of WTC-site-related multiple myeloma last year, are holding a fundraiser on Friday, January 18, 2013 at Mount Saint Michael Academy in the Bronx from 6:00pm to midnight.
Lt. Pupo, 40, was a popular and well-liked ESU lieutenant at the 41st Precinct in the Bronx. He served the NYPD for 14 years. He and his wife Kristin had three young girls.
Pupo spent many months at the World Trade Center site after the terrorist attacks of September 11th. His life was ended by the blood cancer multiple myeloma, one of the cancers that scientists recently linked to the toxins at the Trade Center.
His family is struggling to pay the medical bills from his 4-year illness.
Tickets to the fundraiser are $20.00 in advance or $25.00 at the door. Admission includes food, drink and entertainment.
