6-year-old girl battling cancer becomes honorary police officer

[www.cbsnews.com]

A 6-year-old Texas girl with an incurable cancer said she had dreamed of becoming a police officer, so the Freeport Police Department decided to make her an honorary officer for the day – and the chief of police broke down while swearing her in.
Abigal Arias has a stage-four Wilms' tumor wrapped around her aorta. She went into remission for five months, but then the cancer spread to her lungs. Abigail's doctors don't know of any treatment or chemotherapy that is able to cure her, CBS affiliate KHOU-TV reports.

The department invited Abigail to be sworn in as an honorary officer Thursday, under one condition: Garivey made Abigail make a promise in her oath. "I now and forever promise to keep fighting the bad guys until all my cancer's gone," she said.
The chief couldn't hold back his tears while swearing in the terminally ill girl. He was overcome with emotion as Abigail received her badge, which she wore on her tiny police uniform.

I would like to applaud Abigail's fighting spirit as she battles this disease. I hope I could have a fraction of her fighting spirit in the face of unfavorable odds. The police department's gesture is highly commendable. I would encourage people to donate to worthy charities that relate to this story.

Please, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and views on life. But let's keep the attitude and comments that are not necessary towards original posters and what they post to yourself, and if you feel that it warrants discussion in a less than civil manner, open a thread on the political ranting forum and feel free to air your grievances there smiling smiley

Thank you
