Police Visit Two-Year-Old Boy With Brain Cancer

CHELSEA (CBS) — When the police show up on your doorstep it can mean trouble, but for one family, it meant that their brave little boy was getting a special visit.

A Chelsea mother reached out to local law enforcement to see if they could pay a visit to help cheer up her son. Two-year-old Edison Cordero has an aggressive brain cancer and wished to meet members of the police.

Edison’s older brother Brandon explained, “He loves police, so the police came and brought him stuff and let him get in the car.”

On Sunday, police cruisers lined Edison’s street.
