Man just learned of daughter's cancer diagnosis
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- It can be stressful enough to see a police car behind you, but imagine getting pulled over after learning your child is dying from cancer.
Rodney Gibson was driving on SR 37 in Monroe County Monday, struggling to accept his daughter's breast cancer was not going away.
He was so upset, he did not realize he was speeding.

That's when Indiana State Police Sgt. Todd Durnil pulled him over, and learned Gibson's story.
Trooper Durnil decided to not give him a ticket and instead walked over, thinking Rodney needed some prayers.
Durnil then prayed with him.
Gibson was so appreciative, he started crying.
He even called Trooper Durnil's post in Bloomington to share his appreciation for his kindness.
