4-year-old who got help from Longmont police returns the favor in generous way

LONGMONT, Colo. -- A 4-year-old girl in Longmont thought there might be monsters in her new home and asked officer David Bonday to help her hunt for them.

He did in July and they determined her new home was safe.

On Tuesday, she returned the favor. The girl went to the Longmont Police Department to donate a portion of the money in her piggy bank to officer Kyle Zulauf, who is battling pancreatic cancer.

Zulauf is a husband and father of three. He's also an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan.

The Longmont Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 6 will be hosting several events during the next few months to help raise money to allow the family to focus on Zulauf's treatment and recovery.

Sidney handed her donation over to her monster-hunting friend, Bonday, who was greeted with a big hug from the little girl.
