Officer Ruby Roman

Officer Ruby Roman, a 13 year veteran of the Houston Police Department was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic lung cancer after going to the doctor for a persistent cough. The CT identified a large lung mass, later confirmed to be non-small cell cancer. Her follow up studies identified metastasis to her spine, hips, and lymph nodes. She was sent home and told to enjoy her family for the next six to 12 months. Being the amazing mom of 2 boys (4 and 8 years) she chose to fight this horrible disease, and has elected to begin chemotherapy with aggressive radiation. She is not going to accept that 12 month diagnosis. She is a true blue fighter!  Please, help support Ruby and her family during their time of need.
