Colorado 3-Year-Old Battling Cancer Gets His Own Police Car

posted by Shawn Patrick - 

Nothing breaks my heart more than watching kids battle serious illness. They are so young and innocent, and it's just sad to watch them have to spend their childhood that way. But sometimes something really cool comes out of it... 

That is exactly the case in Larimer County as 3-year-old Wyatt Gentry, whose dad is a deputy for the Larimer County Sheriff's office got a special edition Larimer County Sheriff's Office Power Wheels patrol vehicle this week. 

Wyatt developed a cancerous brain tumor that significantly reduced his vision.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Jerry Sharp was inspired to help the Gentry family and wanted to have a Power Wheels vehicle decorated as an LCSO patrol car, just like Wyatt’s daddy’s car. So he setup a GoFundMe Page and also got a bunch of local business to donate time and resources for the car. 

Eventually a Power Wheels Dodge Charger complete with LCSO graphics,lights, siren, push bumper, and PA system, and everything was donated. So all the money in the GoFundMe can go to the family for medical bills. 

BEST. STORY. EVER!!
