Heroes thank heroes in special East End parade

Heroes thanked heroes in a special parade on the East End Thursday.
The parade, held at New York Cancer and Blood Specialists in Riverhead, was where the sheriff's department thanked smaller treatment centers for the work they are doing during the pandemic. 
The thank you parade was filled with sheriff's deputies corrections officers and other staff from the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office. They cheered, clapped and sounded their sirens to thank the cancer workers for their nonstop hard work during the pandemic.
Sheriff Errol Toulon is a two-time cancer survivor. He says showing his appreciation for these people was a must for him.
"I know what some of the patients are going through, and I think it’s important we not only support the patients, but also those health care workers that are coming to work every day and delivering health care to patients that are battling cancer and going through difficult times," he says.
After stopping in Riverhead, the parade then stopped at the New York Blood and Cancer Specialists in Port Jefferson Station.
