Girl fights cancer fulfills dream of being a policeman

The 6-year-old has Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer in children.

"The chemo and radiation has not worked and actually the family now in God's hands and pray for a miracle," Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr. told. to CNN.

"They basically said it's time to enjoy life," her mother, Ilene Arias, told CNTR affiliated KTRK. "Extremely heavy, we've been crying for a few weeks."

Garivey met Abigail in December at the police "Pancakes with Santa" event. During the meeting, the girl expressed her wish to become a police officer when she grew up.

"Her great smile and want to keep the bad guys in her fight – I wanted her dream come true," said Garivey. "You have to meet her to really understand what a wonderful and inspiring young lady she is. "

So the police chief immediately put things in motion to fulfill her dream. He reached out to a company called Cop Stop to get an adapted Freeport uniform, specially designed for Abigail. The owner of Cop Stop, Rick Fernandez, donated the uniform to her, along with the rigging and the pistol belt.

Abigail was sworn in by her family and policemen from all over the state.

& # 39; She is undoubtedly sent by God, & # 39; said Garivey. "Her story brought peace officers from everywhere in one room today and it was a magical moment for everyone who was present."
