6 year-old battling cancer sworn in as police officer

6-year-old girl with cancer fulfills dream of becoming police officer

"Extremely tough, we cried for a few weeks".

"I have cancer. The bad guys are in my lungs", the six-year-old from Texas told ABC News. "So I want to help the bad guys go away and I want to help this cancer go away in like, 5 seconds".

The bad guys the 6-year-old is up against are inside her. The little girl fought off a kidney cancer only to have it return, and doctors have told her parents there is no cure. Despite that struggle, Abigail says she still wanted to become a police officer.

They even gave her a gun for the ceremony, video shows.

Clad in a uniform decorated with donated patches and challenge coins, Abigail was sworn in by Freeport Police Chief Ray Garivey, who first met Abigail and learned of her wish in December. "The doctors can say what they say medically, but we know that God is the one that has her destiny in his hands".

The Freeport Police Department in Texas swore in its latest officer on Thursday.

'What a great day for the City of Freeport, and our Law Enforcement Family from all over this great state, who were in attendance!' He reached out to a company called Cop Stop to get a custom Freeport uniform specially designed for Abigail. The final part of her pledge before the attendees was: "I now, and forever, promise to keep fighting the bad guys until all of my cancer is gone". "I rung the bell, but now this cancer is coming back", she said.

"Her spirit, her toughness, her will to survive, that's what [we believe in]", Garivey said.

In a clip of the ceremony, Abigail is seen stood on a step ladder with her right hand raised as she repeats an officer's words. "You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is".
