Scott Lee Reinacher Endowment Fund April 30, 2024 11:31

Whether we write a memoir (or not) or are well-known (or not) within our community, in the end we're all remembered for our acts - for the lives we touch and by the causes we advance.

Today we're excited to announce that Scott has decided it is time to retire! But... there is one last mission that we would like to complete before Scott steps down.

ln recognition of his more than 46 years of public safety service, and after assisting over 800 families as President of the Thin Blue Line of Michigan, we would like to honor Scott by creating the Scott Lee Reinacher Endowment Fund.

Your tax deductible (non-profit 501-C3) gifts/donations to the Scott Lee Reinacher Endowment Fund will help ensure that the Thin Blue Line of Michigan will be able to continue its mission of assisting all public safety officers well into the future.

Everyday across America, another public safety officer will be killed or injured in the line of duty. Today, public safety officers have never been more at risk of death or catastrophic injury. That is why it is so important to have an agency like the Thin Blue Line of Michigan who will help support public safety officers and their families in their
time of need.

On behalf of the executive board, we thank Scott for all his unwavering, tireless dedication to The Thin Blue Line of Michigan and wish him a happy, healthy retirement! 

We also would like to thank you ln advance for your generous donation to the Scott Lee Reinacher Endowment Fund as we enter our 25th year of continued service. Please click here to make a Donation.

Deputy Nick Rule December 7, 2023 11:23

Deputy Nick Rule and his wife Taleah were expecting their first child in 2020. Just 5 days before their daughter Blakely was born, Nick suffered a seizure. They would soon find out that seizure was caused by brain cancer. In October of 2020, Nick underwent brain surgery to remove the cancer. The surgery removed most of the cancer, but the Doctors said his cancer would come back, but they could not tell them when. In January 2023, Nick and Taleah welcomed a son Holden. Routine scans in August revealed that Nicks brain cancer was back. Nick underwent a second brain surgery on November 8, 2023. Again, all the tumor could not be removed because it was located in a high motor function area and proceeding farther could have left Nick with severe impairments/disabilities.  

Nick is now battling his second round of brain cancer. Nick has been a Law Enforcement Officer since 2014 working in both Genesee and Oakland County, Michigan. His cancer diagnosis ended his career as a Firefighter/EMT with the North Oakland County Fire Authority (Holly, Michigan) where he had been protecting and serving those residents since 2008. Nick’s wife Taleah is a National Orientation Team Leader for LifeStance Health (A Mental Health Company)

Nick will need to remain off work for an unknown amount of time to recover from surgery and to undergo treatment. Taleah has used all her FMLA for 2023. She could only take 1 week off following Nick’s November surgery, making caring for Nick and their children even harder. Nick and Taleah help and serve others and now they are the ones that need help. In addition to the stress of Nick’s cancer diagnosis for a second time, there is the uncertainty of if or when Nick will be able to return to being a law enforcement officer because of permanent impairments the surgery may have caused. They are also experiencing financial struggles from climbing medical costs. With your support, they can focus on Nick’s health, his cancer fight and their family. 100% of your donation will go to the Rule Family.

Thank you for your support and consideration.
