Parsippany PBA 131 to host “Fight Against Childhood Cancer” boxing fundraiser


PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS — Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Department PBA #131 is hosting a “Fight Against Childhood Cancer” boxing fundraiser at the Parsippany Police Athletic League building, 33 Baldwin Road on September 1, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Sean Ries

Sean Reis is a 10 year-old Parsippany boy battling a rare form of brain cancer.

On February 6, 2012, at just four years old, Sean was diagnosed with a large dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNET) in the left side of his brain, and underwent his first of multiple surgeries the next day. Since then, Sean’s tumor has been in remission for several years, however his family recently learned that the battle is not yet over.

All proceeds will go to the Team Sean foundation and donations are tax deductible.

The event is a fundraiser to help support Sean in his battle against brain cancer. In May, Sean underwent his fourth brain surgery to remove the new tumor the was discovered in February, and since recovering from that, has spent his summer undergoing daily radiation treatment. 

Brenda Reis, Sean’s mother said “We are so grateful for the support we have received from our amazing “little” town of Parsippany, and are looking forward to this upcoming event.  Officer Dan Cicala is leading this event.” 

Sean is currently receiving daily radiation treatments, but his appointments are typically in the early afternoon so we are usually available in the mornings or late afternoon/evenings.

Team Sean is seeking support. Click here to sponsor this event.
