A police officer is taking her oath to a whole new level, protecting and serving one of the young members of the community by donating her kidney.

Officer Lindsey Bittorf of the Milton, Wisconsin, Police Department saw a plea on Facebook in December by 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 was tested and learned that she is a 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.”
