In 2012, Fort Worth police officer Damon Cole started dressing up as Superman for community events and visits to local hospitals.
Since then, Officer Cole has made it a point to visit any child with cancer or another illness that would like to see him.
All of these visits come out of Officer Cole's own time and pocket, since they aren't part of his typical duties as a police officer.
He has since accumulated many other superhero costumes, and now dresses as Batman, Iron Man, and Spiderman, to name a few. Officer Cole shares the touching stories of the children he meets through his Facebook page, Heroes & Cops Against Childhood Cancer.
On September 30, Officer Cole shared a video on his page to tell the story about a special ten-year-old girl named Bella. Calling her "Hero Bella," Officer Cole revealed that she was given a terminal diagnosis and only had three weeks left to live at that time.
Officer Cole learned that Bella's all-time favorite singer is George Strait. Throughout her lifetime, Bella has undergone 15 surgeries, and listens to Strait's music before and after each one. She also listens to his songs every night before she falls asleep.Officer Cole created a video asking people to tag Strait in the hopes that he would come across Bella's story.
Many people jumped in to help Officer Cole, and one was able to get him the contact info for Strait's manager.
All of the hard work finally paid off, as the news about Bella finally ended up reaching Strait.
He set aside his time to record a special video message for the little girl, and Officer Cole was happy to share it.
Officer Cole was very touched by the King of country music's kind words.
