WEYMOUTH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Two blood drives are planned to honor two Weymouth locals who have a special spot in the hearts of many from that city.
The first drive is in honor of Sgt. Michael Chesna, a Weymouth Police officer killed in the line of duty in 2018, after being attacked while responding to a call about an erratic driver.
A second blood drive will be held in honor of Weymouth 5-year-old Quinn Waters, known locally as "The Mighty Quinn." Waters has been fighting cancer for most of his life.
After beating cancer once, Waters' family says his cancer has returned. The Waters family says that blood platelets greatly helped Quinn inn his last battle with cancer. The drive will be held on April 14, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Weymouth Police Department.
