It can be stressful enough to see a police car behind you, but imagine getting pulled over after learning your child is dying from cancer.
Durnil was inspecting Gibson’s vehicle when he noticed an angel pin tucked into the truck’s visor that was identical to the one he keeps in his cruiser.
The officer told WRTV that Gibson told him ”with tears in his eyes” that the pin was a gift from his daughter to help keep him safe while driving. Gibson then told Durnil about the unfavorable cancer diagnosis.
Durnil told WRTV that instead of issuing a ticket or even a warning, he planned on asking his family and church to pray for Gibson.

Rodney Gibson was driving on SR 37 in Monroe County Monday, struggling to accept his daughter's breast cancer was not going away.
That's when Indiana State Police Sgt. Todd Durnil pulled him over, and learned Gibson's story.
Trooper Durnil decided to not give him a ticket and instead walked over, thinking Rodney needed some prayers.
Durnil then prayed with him.
Gibson was so appreciative, he started crying.
He even called Trooper Durnil's post in Bloomington to share his appreciation for his kindness.
