ELMWOOD PARK, New Jersey - Police officers helped make the holidays a little brighter for a New Jersey family that's going through a very tough time.

Two brothers in the Leider family in Elmwood Park - 7-year-old Justin and 10-year-old Jason - are battling Hunter's syndrome, a rare and deadly disease.

The Secaucus PBA wanted to make sure the boys and their sister have a good Christmas, so they bought up every item on their wish list.
