6-yr-old Texas girl with cancer fulfills wish to become a police officer [View all]


"I have cancer. The bad guys are in my lungs," the six-year-old from Texas told ABC News.




Abigail has Wilms Tumours, a form of cancer that starts in the kidneys. Her family were recently told her cancer is terminal.

In December, she met Freeport Police Chief Ray Garivey, and the pair struck up an instant friendship.

Abigail confided in Mr Garivey that she has always wanted to be a police officer. This week Abigail's dream came true.

Wearing a specially made uniform, and standing on a stepladder, she was sworn in as an honorary officer of the Freeport Police Department.
