Public Chip In for Heroic New Zealand Police Officer Needing Surgery

The fund to help a hero cop pay for potentially lifesaving cancer treatment in the UK has now reached $22,000.

Papakura Constable John Connolly was diagnosed with cancer this year. It comes after a highly public beating in South Auckland in 2010 in which he almost died.

Mr Connolly was off-duty and walking his dog when he tried to stop two girls fighting near his home in Tuakau.

As he went to help, he was king-hit from behind before up to 30 teenagers joined the attack, leaving him with a fractured skull, a collapsed lung, a broken jaw and a broken ankle.

Last month, the 44-year-old was told he had throat cancer.
