SAN JOSE, Calif. (KTVU) - A 10-year-old boy awaiting a heart transplant got his spirits lifted by San Jose Police officers.
Earlier this month Braydon Eidenshink's mom posted on social media about his goal of collecting law enforcement coins and badges from officers in each state.
Hundreds of departments from around the country have now sent Braydon care packages of police memorabilia.
A group of San Jose officers stepped up in a big way, personally delivering items in hopes of cheering up Braydon. They delivered patches, a baseball hat, numerous shirts and even a stuffed police bear that dances to the theme song for 'Cops.' Braydon reported the bear was his favorite.
Braydon is from Bakersfield and has been staying at the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford since June while he awaits a transplant.
His mom Brenda said the officers' gifts mean so much and have brought her son a lot of joy.
