Katie Neel Recovery Fund

Katie Neel Recovery Fund

Officer Dallas Neel and his family can use our support and prayers. His 16-year-old daughter Katie was diagnosed last year with a rare autoimmune disease. Katie has now developed Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Katie is being treated at Duke University. She has just begun a new stronger round of chemotherapy that will last for the next six months.

Because of Covid-19, only one parent has been able to be with Katie at Duke. If the emotional and physical toll was not tremendous enough, the financial burden can be overwhelming.

There have been numerous trips to Duke over the last year with many more to come. With those trips come more expenses; overnight stays, meals and lost time from work. As many of you know, doctor and hospital bills are astronomical. Please remember Katie, Dallas, his wife Jennifer and their other children Wyatt and Emily in your prayers.

The PBF and Virginia Natural Resources Police Chapter have started a recovery fund to help the Neel family with the ever-growing medical expenses that are accumulating.

100% of the money received by the PBF will go towards the Katie Neel Recovery Fund.
