CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – A Clay County junior deputy paid a special visit recently to a deputy recovering from breast cancer.
Deputy Cortney Altstatt, 27, has openly shared her journey through chemotherapy treatments, a double mastectomy, other surgeries and radiation therapy.
She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer after finding a lump during a self-breast exam last year.
The Sheriff's Office said Altstatt is on her way to healing and got a helping hand, some flowers and a smile from a junior deputy during a recent visit.
(He also brought along some doughnuts!)
"You all have been following her journey through cancer survival, surgeries and serious treatments -- to which we are beyond amazed at your support," the Sheriff's Office wrote on Facebook.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for anyone wishing to help the Altstatt family.
