Peabody Police, in conjunction with Cops For Kids With Cancer, is presenting a $5,000 donation to Dupont family to help with the medical care of their son, Aiden. 

Aiden is the son of Peabody native and Department of Public Services employee Jason Dupont and his wife, Julie. They learned nine days after the birth of Aiden and his twin sister Colleen in 2012 that Aiden has cancer. 

Aiden has Retinoblastoma, which affects his eyes. Doctors have been using laser treatment and cryotherapy to fight the tumors in Aiden's eyes, but there is one particularly problematic tumor and the family is facing costly chemotherapy treatments. 

Cops for Kids With Cancer has donated more than $1.4 million to help children with cancer

You can help Aiden's cause by donating on a GoFundMe page created by Julie Dupont. More than $4,200 has been raised on that page. You can donate here.

This is such a worthy cause -- could any parent not feel the anxiety that these parents must be feeling? As the ad says, "Just Do It."
