A young Wisconsin girlfriend with an inoperable psyche tumor and a ardour of dogs suffered quite the day when virtually 40 different police departments from around the commonwealth — including K-9 police — called her at home.
In January, 7-year-old Emma Mertens was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, a rare psyche tumor, as Fox 6 reported. Soon after her diagnosis, Mertens asked people for photos of their dogs.
During the time since, Mertens, of Hartland, roughly 25 miles west of Milwaukee, has received endless characters and photos from friends and allies trying to clap her up.
And on Saturday, she received an even bigger number of kindness when K-9 police officers from close to 40 different police agencies stopped by her house.
“Today, only a few of us( roughly 40) to halt to receive Emma, ” the Hartford Police Department wrote in a Facebook berth. “She had no idea we were coming so “shes been” VERY agitated. What an amazing and strong little girl. It was such a great morning.”
Photos of the glad era establish the officers and the K-9s lined up to see Mertens. Her kinfolk wrote online that, ” There are no words….Pure Joy! ” for responding to the 7-year-old’s special visit.
“Thank you to everyone who made the time to organize and participate in this. Emma is still all smiles! Over 35 different departments and many more K9s and detectives, ” her family wrote.
