Royal Oak police and firefighters are raising funds and getting ready to face off in a benefit Guns & Hoses hockey game to help a longtime Clawson volunteer battling cancer: Carrie Chambers, 42, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall, underwent a double mastectomy, and later learned the disease had spread. The annual charity game, now in its seventh year, is organized by police Sgt. Patrick Stanton and Firefighter Tony Cattini.
Over the years, Guns & Hoses in Royal Oak has raised money for the families of a fallen state police trooper, a Madison Heights police officer who died from illness, a hockey program for disabled war veterans, autism, and a nonprofit that provides dogs to help child victims testify in court cases. Tickets are on sale now for the upcoming hockey game at 7:30 p.m. April 22 at the Lindell Ice Arena.
