Lady cop donates kidney to 8-year-old boy after reading his mom’s Facebook page

Police are faced with a harrowing task of maintaining law and order in this day and age, and it really is tough out there. This is a story of a kind police officer who went the extra mile for a boy she only met once.

8-year-old Jackson Arneson was diagnosed with posterior urethral valves, a condition that has caused damage to his kidneys. His kidney function deteriorated so much that the only option left was to find a donor kidney. His mom, Kristi Goll, and the rest of family members were not the suitable match for being his donor. So Goll reached out on social media to request if anyone would be willing to do the noble task.

“I always knew these days would come. I have reached out before, I am just trying again to see if we can find anyone out there that would be interested in being tested,” Goll wrote in a post to her Facebook.

“Social media has the ability to go a long way, and Jackson’s transplant social worker reassured me of this. This would be the very best gift we could receive,” Goll added.

When Lindsey Bittorf, a police officer with the Milton Police Department, spotted it online, she decided to see if she was a match. Incredibly, Bittorf’s test results showed she was practically a perfect match, which is rare for people who aren’t related.  She knew then she was going to give an organ away to a boy she’d never met.

“I’m pretty set in my ways, so if I set my mind to something, there’s really not talking me out of doing this. I was doing it,” Bittorf told ABC News affiliate WISN. “This is seriously, like, meant to be. It’s going to be me.”

Bittorf stopped by the family’s home and surprised them with the life-changing news. “I took an oath to serve and protect our community, and now my kidney’s going to serve and protect you,” Bittorf told Jackson.

“Jackson forever has his hero,” Goll said. “Lindsey, I already feel so connected to you… and I’ve known you for a day. We cannot thank you enough for continuing Jackson’s journey with us.”

“We hugged a lot and we cried a lot, and it was just a pretty amazing moment,” Goll said in an interview with WISN, wiping away tears.
