Attention Officers, Family, Friends and Businesses



Sergeant  Jessica Tillson is a single mother who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. This is Jessica's second bout with cancer. For the last five years it was assumed Jessica was cancer free. Unfortunately, the cancer has returned and is the same type Jessica suffered from five years ago. At the moment, the cancer is present in both of Jessica’s lungs, abdomen, and lymph nodes, . Jessica has started chemo but due to the advanced stage of the cancer, Jessica is left with many questions that cannot be answered.

After speaking with Jessica, it was learned that among many things, one of the things she would like to do with her time is travel to places she has never been with her 10 year old daughter. As a community of family, friends and even strangers, we can make this happen.


Blackhorse appreciates the opportunites police officers give our veterans when they stray from the path, and as such Blackhorse is proud to support this just cause.  They will be hosting a benefit dinner in Jessica’s honor at The Vasco Da Gama Club in Bridgeport on September 28, 2012 at 6pm. They are looking for donations in the form of raffle prizes, silent auction items, food trays, and beverages . If you are able to help with this, please call or email the following:
