NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A North Charleston Police Department (NCPD) officer has an extra reason to celebrate this holiday season as she announced her breast cancer is in remission.

Private First Class Ashley Thompson is a Citadel graduate and Army veteran. She was in officer candidate school with NCPD when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020.

The Lowcountry law enforcement community rallied behind her throughout her battle.

NCPD and the North Charleston Fire Department teamed up in October of 2021 to escort PFC Thompson to her first post-chemo operation at Roper.

Now, two months later, her most recent pathology report shows no active cancer and no evidence of disease.

NCPD said that she has returned to work and is on light duty.
