Please help support Officer Sean Lucas and his family through this difficult time! We are beyond grateful for absolutely any support we recieve. Please, Stand with Sean, in any way you are able. Visit his gofundme page for donations or his facebook group for details.


It's been said that our greatest currency in life is the people we choose to surround ourselves with and if you've been lucky enough to know Sean Lucas and his beautiful family over the years, then you certainly know your life is all the richer for it.

A friend to any and everyone who crosses his path (the Lucas garage has always stayed open regardless of the home address). A respected Chicago Police Officer. A Sox and Bears fan through the good times and bad and an avid movie lover; he never turns down the chance to catch a game or watch a flick. And best of all, a loving husband to Vivian and father of three to Everett (7), Noelle (4), and Sawyer (2).

Though his closest friends have always done most of the fighting over the years, Sean is now taking on the toughest fight any of us have faced. Diagnosed with Stage 4 High-Grade Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix, Sean has been and will continue to undergo numerous treatments to defend against this rare form of cancer. In the several months since his diagnosis (Oct '22), there have been highs and lows, yet nothing has changed his sense of optimism and determination to beat this disease.

As he approaches a critical inflection point in this journey, Sean and his family have decided that it's time to share this news with the greater community of friends and acquaintances who care about Sean. This group will be a destination for updates and news about Sean's progress, as well as a forum for this community to share words of encouragement with him and his family. Though, at some point, we all know it will likely evolve to people popping in to reminisce about the glory days of IC vs Julianas grade school football.

With that said, a benefit event is currently being organized with a confirmed date of June 16th at The Fairway, which is the banquet hall at Howard Street. More details to come as we approach the date.

Lastly this group page includes a link to a GoFundMe set up to benefit Sean and his family in an effort to absorb costs related to his treatments as he travels to and from the East Coast to work with a renowned doctor who specializes in this type of cancer. It will also help the family as Sean will take time away from CPD to focus on his health. If you are so inclined, please consider donating.

Sean has a tremendous amount of love and support from his family and friends. He is setting the bar incredibly high for how to handle adversity with confidence, strength and the quick witted, sarcastic sense of humor he has always had.
