LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police went the extra mile to help a cancer patient during mid-January's winter storm.

Couriers were not able to get his medication from Louisville to Lexington, so KSP stepped in to help. 

One trooper picked up the medication and drove it to Frankfort. He then handed it off to another trooper, who hand-delivered it to the cancer center.

The trip took five hours to complete. 

"It was a single mother who raised me. This is kind of a way of her saying, 'hey, do something good, for what people did for me while I was in the hospital,'" Trooper Kalen Hall said. 

The hospital treated the troopers with a trip to a University of Kentucky basketball game.
