A police officer is taking her oath to a whole new level, protecting and serving one of the young members of her community by donating her kidney to him.
Officer Lindsey Bittorf of the Milton, Wisconsin Police department saw a plea on Facebook in December by mom Kristi Goll, who was desperate to find a kidney donor for her 8-year-old son Jackson.
Jackson was born with Posterior urethral Valves, family members told WISN.
Bittorf got tested and ended up being a great match for Jackson. Doctors were shocked to find such a strong match in someone who wasn’t a blood relative.
Bittorf surprised the family with the good news at their home. The touching moment was captured on video.
“I took an oath to serve and protect our community,” Bittorf told Jackson, “and now my kidney’s going to serve and protect you.”
