DeLand Police Department officers are raising funds for one of their own who recently was diagnosed with an incurable lung disease.

Six-year veteran Constantine “Dino” Procos, a native of South Africa and former skydiving instructor, was diagnosed in March with an incurable lung disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, a condition that causes the lungs to solidify. Doctors have given him a prognosis of six to 12 months to live if he does not receive a double lung transplant.

In order to receive the transplant, Officer Procos will have to relocate to Jacksonville and receive around-the-clock care, which is not covered by insurance.

A GoFundMe page has been setup in Procos’ name to cover medical expenses and fundraisers will be held in the near future. https://www.gofundme.com/officer-dino-procos-medical-fund
