Beach Police Chief for a day and parade grand marshal According to Chief of Police Libby Legg, the Colonial Beach Police Department (CBPD) will be hosting its first ever "Chief for a Day" this weekend to honor and acknowledge the incredible resil- ience of five-year-old Janayreon Treveon Brown, a Colonial Beach boy who is battling Stage 4 Neu- roblastoma, a type of cancer that affects children. Jamyreon's treatment for the disease requires him to have ten rounds of chemotherapy, each taking a week to complete. He completes his fifth round this Fri- day and will be halfway through the cycle. Chief Legg explains, "He wants to be a police officer, and the opportunity has arisen for us to make this happen, which will include a ride along with Sgt. Amy Molinares and culminates with him being the grand marshal for the parade this weekend:' Originally scheduled to be the grand marshal of the 63rd Annual Potomac River Festival herself, Chief Legg has graciously offered to share the honor with Jamyreon and his twin brother, Damyreon Saveon Brown. The twins will ride in Saturday's Grand Feature Parade in Chief Legg convert- ible, driven by Colonial Beach's first-ever female Chief of Police herself. "Jay-Jay" as his family calls him, has four brothers and sisters. He is a student in the Colonial Beach Head Start program, in Ms. John- son's class. While he is away each month for his weeklong treat- ment, he Skypes with'his class to keep in touch. He loves music, es- pecially gospel music, so much so that the staff at Medical College of Virginia gave him a set of drums for Christmas. The twins' mother, Christine, says that when the twins are to- gether, they tend to fight. But when Jamyreon is away for a week at a time for treatment, she says it's obvious that the twins are sad" 5 year old Jamyreon Treveon Brown will be police chief for a day in Col. Beach, VA. and miss each other. Christine firmly believes that Damyreofl can feel his brother's pain and/or discomfort. Being "Chief for a Day" will be Jamyreon's most exciting experience since The Make A Wish Foundation arranged for him to meet profes- sional wrestler and actor John Cena in Philadelphia, PA. "His mother, Christine Brown, is an amazing woman whose optimism is an inspiration" says Chief Legg. "We hope that this event will assist his family, and that our town will embrace him and his family and of- fer their support and love as he con- tinues on this journey:' Oennb X Oodson Ins Alley I ,,. especially when it Dennis Dodson, Agent saves you money. 2304 Jefferson Davis Highway Fredericksburg, YA 224O1 I can help you save an Bus: 540-373-2300 average of $480.
