Mum’s joined forces to donate breast milk to feed baby after mum was killed in the line of duty.

Baby Cora, 4-months-old is the daughter of Palm Springs police officer Lesley Zerebny, who was one of two police officers shot after they attended a domestic disturbance.

KTVU newscaster Claudine Wong shared photos a friend had sent her of large coolers packed with the bags of breast milk Tuesday, reports PEOPLE.

“In this family … no one fights alone,” Wong wrote on Facebook. “It’s amazing what people do when they find out there is a need and find out that they can help.”

Officer Zerebny, 27, had just returned to work after maternity leave when she and fellow officer Jose Gilbert “Gil” Vega were shot responding to a call about a “family disturbance,” according to Palm Springs, Calif. police. A suspect with a criminal record was arrested Sunday morning for the crime.

One of Zerebny’s family members posted on social media after her death requesting prayers, when a woman named Ashley asked if donated breast milk would help. By Monday night, barely 24 hours later, the 500 oz. of breast milk were delivered for baby Cora.

“It’s something only mothers can do for Officer Zerebny,” Wong writes.

Such a kind gesture. Our thoughts are with all involved.

  • Very touching story. Wishing you g Bub all the best. They gave their mum up above and angels to help them through.


  • Angels do walk amongst us. I’m sure the mother would have been very grateful.


  • It is great to see people helping out in this sad case.


  • What a lovely gesture. So many caring mums uniting to help one little bub. Best wishes to all involved


  • Beautiful that people reach out !


  • I am sure the milk will be screened. If the baby refuses formula there won’t be any other option.


  • In such a terrible moment, it’s really nice to see how much kindness there is in the world.


  • What a wonderful thing these other women have done for this poor family. I only hope that they milk is screened before offered to the baby. I would hate to hear later on that the baby contracted something.
