Graffiti Bridge Painted to honor Pensacola Officer fighting brain cancer

We are sending our prayers to Officer Stephen Grogan and his family as his fight against brain cancer has gone viral locally.

The Pensacola Police Department put a note out of their Facebook page asking for the support of our local community. The post tells his story and we encourage you to read it in its entirety below…

“Within a year of Stephen becoming a solo patrol officer, he began experiencing debilitating headaches. He went to the doctor and received unimaginable news. At merely 31 years of age, Officer Stephen Grogan was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, a rare form of aggressive and recurring brain cancer. Without treatment, the expected survival rate for this form of cancer was less than three months. Even with treatment, the outlook was bleak, with people commonly surviving only about a year and very few people surviving five years or longer.”

An online fundraiser has been created and can be found at: or you can donate in person at the PPD front desk.
