Abigail is a little girl who had a big dream: to become a police officer.

But before things get any worse, she was given the opportunity to fulfil a dream she thought she never would. The six-year-old's condition has worsened, to the point that she is not expected to live too much longer.

Freeport, Texas, police chief Raymond Garivey Jr nearly broke down as he sworn in six-year-old Abigail Rose Arias as an honorary officer on February 7.

Abigail Arias has been fighting the disease for two years.

Garivey met Abigail at a "Pancakes with Santa" event, where she told the officer she wanted to become a policewoman when she was older.

Garviey was emotional as Abigail took the oath to continue fighting the "bad guys" until she is cancer free. "Extremely tough. We cried for weeks".

Police in Freeport tweeted details of Thursday's ceremony honoring Abigail Arias (AR'-ee-ahs).

Around the same time a huge roar reverberated around the Barwon Heads links and it was a Scot who had caused it. We played alternate groups, it was good to catch-up with a lot of girls I grew up playing golf with as well.

'What a great day for the City of Freeport, and our Law Enforcement Family from all over this great state, who were in attendance!' "You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is".

She was dressed in full Freeport Police Department blues as she climbed up a stepladder, raised her right hand and repeated Garivey's words.

So Garivey reached out to an organization in Pearland called Cop Stop, which was able to make a custom Freeport police uniform for Abigail.

As for now, the bad guys have spread to her lungs, KTRK reported. "And I want to help this cancer, like, go away in five seconds".
