Shop with a Cop

The North Las Vegas Police Department and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation invited Naomi to participate in the 2017 Shop with a Cop Event. Naomi was paired with Officer Scott Vaughn of North Las Vegas and Metro. It was an exciting morning of pictures with Santa, breakfast with the police force and staff of the event, and Naomi and Scott (and I) walking through Target to buy whatever Naomi wanted.

Being selfless, Naomi first shopped for her siblings and then for herself. She choose shirts, slippers, a watch, some games and a puzzle. After checking out, she still had money to spend and was able to go back through the store and spend more. She choose snacks to share with her family. Again, she demonstrated that her family means everything to her and I cannot even put my feelings into words about that.

The entire event was heart-touching and made her smile and feel so special. After the year she has had, I am so thankful to Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and the North Las Vegas police force. I cannot say enough about Officer Vaughn and how much respect and compassion he demonstrated. He introduced us to the Chief, the Mayor, the former Mayor and some of the officers and swat team. It was definitely a day we will never forget.

Naomi’s balloon floated to the ceiling. He lifted her up to get it, but they couldn’t reach it alone. So someone brought over a ladder to rescue the balloon. Sinéad was very happy for that balloon once Naomi brought it home to her!
