Fountain Valley Police Department News

The Fountain Valley Police Department has been "HUSTLED!" Cox Elementary 1st grade students came by to drop off some cupcakes in honor of Carter Ankeny, a Fountain Valley Warrior, who would have been 7 years old today. Carter was diagnosed with Leukemia a couple years ago. He underwent chemo therapy, which completely depleted his immune system. Carter ended up getting an infection that his body was not able to fight. On October 8, 2017, the strong little warrior lost his battle. Carter promoted #hustlekindness to spread a little more kindness in the world, and to bring awareness to children's cancer research. #carterstrong
