Officer CJ Franco's 22-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with stage 4 synovial sarcoma.

The Scotch Plains PBA is running a Casino Night to support the family of 25-year department veteran CJ Franco.

Officer Franco's 22-year-old daughter, Samantha Franco, was recently diagnosed with stage 4 synovial sarcoma, a very rare and aggressive form of cancer.
