February 25, 2016 Sandy Springs, Ga. Kimberly Carter travels several times a week with her terminally ill 2 year old child who has an inoperable brain tumor and suffers from hydrocephalus to required therapy. However on Tuesday she had a flat tire while on the way to the child’s important therapy session. She called for a tow truck to come and change the tire but they didn’t show up. Kimberly was panic stricken and called 911.
Officer Steve Hammer responded and was going to wait with her for the tow vehicle to arrive and while waiting was going to ensure that traffic was diverted around her vehicle so that she and her child were safe. During their encounter he had a chance to talk with her and learned that her child was ill and had compassion for her plight.
In the end the Officer changed the tire for her so that she could make the appointment on time for the baby.
“He was gonna wait and try to help the traffic go around the car to keep us from being run off the road,” Carter told WSB-TV.
“I can reach out to her and sympathize to her and give her a lot of credit for what she’s doing,” Hammer said.
“They always talk about the bad things officers do, but you never hear about anything positive that officers do and that helped me out a lot,” Carter said.
Much of the baby’s medical expenses are not covered by insurance. If you would like to contribute a few dollars to help this adorable child and mother with the cost please consider donating here at the child’s GoFundme Page “Armani the “Hydrowarrior“.
