(KAIR)--A GoFundMe fundraiser has been put in place to assist a local police officer suffering from a form of cancer.

According to the description of the online fundraiser, Atchison Police Officer Alex Moore was recently diagnosed with tonsil and throat cancer, meaning multiple doctor visits, recovery, and hours of drive time from Atchison to Kansas City.

According to a post made by his wife, Jodi, Moore is scheduled for surgery September 26 at the University of Kansas Medical Center, in Kansas City, Kansas. She explains, in the post, that a five-day hospital stay is scheduled, and a 6 week recovery period that will be followed by another six weeks of radiation treatment.

The Moores are known for starting the organization Heroes Helping, which raises funds and gathers items to provide local children with school supplies, new shoes, and other such assistance at the beginning of each school year.

The Moores have four school-aged children.

The fundraiser was started by Moore's fellow Atchison Police Officer Whitney Wagner who says the $10,000 goal is intended "to make sure that Alex and Jodi have one less thing to worry about" during his cancer treatment.
