In order to keep his job, Meixueiro walks from Kansas City to Mission, KS every day for work.

"It's a five-to-six hour walk. I've been doing it so I can keep my job," Meixueiro said.

Last week, Meixueiro decided to take a break in a park on his way to work. Someone nearby saw him and thought he looked suspicious, and called the cops.

Officer Zach Stamper arrived on the scene.

Stamper began chatting with Meixueiro. He learned his story and decided to give him a ride to work that day. But Meixueiro's story stuck with him long after he dropped him off.

Stamper came back a half-hour later with a brand new bike for Meixueiro along with a duffel bag for him to carry all of his things in.

"I cried. I couldn't believe it. Things are so hard for me right now. Any kind of help is just a blessing," Meixueiro told Fox 4 News.

Meixueiro says the bike meant the world, but what meant more is someone believing in him and his future. The pair exchanged phone numbers and plan to stay in touch for a long time to come.
