Slain Officer’s Husband Struggles To Raise Their Newborn Alone - Receives A Surprise Delivery (Photos)

After the death of a police woman in California, mothers who she didn't even know are stepping up to do their part. The police woman was the breastfeeding mother of a 4-month-old baby. Other nursing moms are donating milk.

Lesley Zerebny was one of the two officers killed on duty in Palm Springs in October. Zerebny had just finished her maternity leave and was survived by her infant child. When word got out on social media that the officer was a breastfeeding mom, other breastfeeding mothers rushed to donate breast milk.

It started with one local woman named Ashley who offered to donate her breastmilk to Zerebny's baby. The family was so grateful that Ashley started a campaign to collect more than 500 ounces of milk from moms all over the Monterey area.

Each milk donation is being screened and tested before being given to the baby. The donations will help keep the baby on breast milk for at least another month.

The family is also accepting formula donations to supplement the breast milk, if necessary.

Sometimes such a small comfort can make a huge difference in the lives of a grieving family.
