There, she told the police chief that she wanted to be an officer when she grows up.
So the police chief immediately put things in motion to fulfil her dream. The six-year-old's condition has worsened, to the point that she is not expected to live too much longer.
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.
Her parents, Rueben and Eileen Arias, said their strong faith is helping them cope with her prognosis.
Abigail Arias, 6, who is battling cancer, stands on a chair and is sworn in as a Texas police officer - complete with a donut. 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". "[It's] extremely tough. We cried for a few weeks".
'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 insisted the crown prince had no role in the slaying - that it was a "rogue operation" with no official backing. Pompeo said that Trump's administration was "working diligently" on its investigation.
'You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is'.
"Abigail is battling cancer, and doctors have told the family there is no cure", they wrote, adding: "Please keep her and the Arias family in your thoughts and prayers".
Community members joined Abigail's family for a celebration after she took the oath. "So I want to help the bad guys go away and I want to help this cancer go away in like, 5 seconds".
A custom uniform was made for Abigail, and she was sworn in surrounded by loved ones and officers from several different agencies.
