4-Year-Old Gives Piggy Bank Savings to Police Officer Battling Cancer

Her mom said the moment made her extremely proud.

The kindness of a Colorado 4-year-old far exceeds her years. 

When Sidney Fahrenbruch heard that one of the officers with the Longmont Police Department is battling cancer, she knew she needed to do something to help.

“She wanted to give her piggy bank money,” Sidney’s mom, Megan Fahrenbruch, told InsideEdition.com.  

So the 4-year-old cracked her bank open and donated around $8 in bills and change to Officer Kyle Zulauf, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer more than a year ago.

Sidney was just returning the favor to the department who helped her earlier this year when she called police because she thought there were “monsters” in her house. 

"Many of you will recall Sidney (4-years-old), who made national news when Longmont Police Officer Bonday came to her house to search out and remove monsters in her new home," the department said on Facebook. "Today, Sidney was back at the department with a different purpose. She brought the contents of her piggy bank for Officer Bonday to provide to our fundraiser for one of our officers who has been diagnosed with cancer. Words are not available for what this means to us."

Fahrenbruch said she was so proud of her daughter for being so selfless at such a young age.

“The cops were crying when she handed the money over, “Fahrenbruch said. “It was a very emotional moment, just that a child can understand the situation. The police department was overwhelmed.”
