Blood drive held for Clovis Police dispatcher battling cancer

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Clovis Police Department dispatcher is getting help from a community that he serves on a daily basis.

Instead of helping fight crime, dispatcher Dillon Reed is battling cancer right now. During his time in the hospital, he's needed a lot of blood so his colleagues at the police department set up a blood drive this weekend in his honor.

In the first two days, they got 120 pints of blood.

"He's home resting now, which is good," Sgt. Jim Munro with the Clovis Police Department said. "We hope he can be back in our dispatch center working sometime soon when he's up to par. He's fighting the fight and we hope that he continues that progress."

Even through the official blood drive is over you can still donate blood to help people like Reed. Just head over to any of the Central California Blood Center.
