A young cancer victim was devastated when his bike was stolen, but he started to smile again when the Police gifted him with a brand new bicycle.


Daylin Campbell was heartbroken when the bike his parents had given him for Christmas vanished from the porch of the family's home in Lake Wales, Florida.

The 13-year-old, who had been diagnosed with leukemia in May 2018, had been working hard to build up his strength to ride that bike, and it seemed as if his dream was dashed.


“It just didn’t sit well with us knowing someone stole 13-year-old Daylin Campbell’s bike off his front porch Monday in Lake Wales. This week we kindly received a donated bike and surprised Daylin with it to cheer him up.”


When the bike disappeared on March 25, 2019, Daylin's mom, Canice Jordan, reached out to the Internet community through Facebook.

She asked for help in locating and retrieving her son's beloved stolen bike, and that is when the Polk County Police got involved.


The Polk County Police later posted a video of the encounter on their Facebook page, and revealed that Daylin is now in remission from his leukemia.


Twelve hours later, Daylin and his mom would get the surprise of their lives when Grady Judd, the Sheriff of Polk County, showed up at his door with a bright, shiny, brand-new mountain bike to replace the one taken by the heartless thief.



The Police Department had heard about Daylin's situation on Facebook and decided to set things right. They reached out to the community, and a new bike was donated to replace Dylan's stolen property.



Daylin was speechless when a knock on the door turned out to be the Polk County Sheriff and two of his Deputies who presented him with a bike, a helmet, and most important of all, a lock to foil the bike thief.

The kindly officers made sure the new helmet fit Daylin, and left the 6th grader speechless with emotion.

The Polk County Police later posted a video of the encounter on their Facebook page, and revealed that Daylin is now in remission from his leukemia.



Like Daylin Campbell, Carter McPherson was diagnosed with leukemia, and he too experienced the loving support of the Internet community.

4-year-old boy Carter diagnosed with Pre-B Cell Acute Lumpblastic Leukemia in 2017, and has been fighting the terrible disease ever since.

Since he was too sick to go trick-or-treating, his mother decided to see how many Halloween cards she could send Carter to cheer him up.

She shared her idea on social media, and the cards started flooding in,k with Amazon delivering up to ten boxes a day.

Carter has also received presents from well-wishers ranging from colouring books, to stuffed toys, and even furniture.
