The Police Benevolent Foundation and the Alabama Division of the Southern States Police Benevolent Association have created the "Officer Kevin Blue Recovery Fund," to help the six-year veteran of the Piedmont Police Department pay for treatment after being diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer earlier this year, according to AL.com.

Blue was diagnosed with stage 4 multiform glioblastoma earlier this year after going to the doctor for memory problems — he was given six months to live.

"He is fighting so that he can see his nine-month-old grandson put on cleats one day," Blue’s sister — Kalisha Todd — is quoted as saying on the fund's website.

All donations to the fund are tax-deductible, with 100 percent of contributions going to Blue.
