Year-old with cancer sworn in as Freeport TX cop

Six-year-old girl with cancer fulfils dream of becoming a police officer

And on Thursday, that dream came true when she was officially sworn in as an honorary officer in Freeport, Texas.

Abigail confided in Mr Garivey that she has always wanted to be a police officer.

Garviey was emotional as Abigail took the oath to continue fighting the "bad guys" until she is cancer free.

"The chemo and radiation hasn't worked and basically the family is now leaving it in God's hands and praying for a miracle", Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr. told CNN.

Ball is averaging over five assists a game, but he still struggles to score the basketball at only 9.9 points per game. In the interview, Ball said, "Luke Walton turned him into a loser".


Abigal Arias has a stage-four Wilms' tumor wrapped around her aorta.

But Abigail is strong, and she told her mother that the bad guys won't win this time. She has inoperable cancer in the form of a Wilms tumor that started in her kidney, according to KTRK.

Chief Ray Garivey had learned of Abigail's interest in law enforcement and dream. "Extremely tough. We cried for a few weeks". There, she told the police chief that she wanted to be an officer when she grows up. "I now and forever promise to keep fighting the bad guys until all my cancer's gone", she said.

The firm's owner, Rock Fernandez, donated the uniform to her, alongside the duty rig and gun belt.

'You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is'. She also vowed to keep fighting the "bad guys" inside her despite her cancer returning for a second time.

"Her spirit, her toughness, her will to survive, that's what [we believe in]", Mr Garivey said. "But there's not a lot of people who can bring all these people to one place, and that's huge, and that says a lot for this little girl who sits right here today".

Abigail said the day "felt neat inside my heart". "I rung the bell, but now this cancer is coming back".
