6-year-old Abigail Arias is a little girl with big dreams. She has Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer in children, and unfortunately the chemo and radiation hasn't worked.
That didn't stop her from becoming a police officer though. Her dream came true with the help of Freeport Police Department. Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr. met Abigail at the police department's "Pancakes with Santa" where she expressed her desire to become a police officer when she grows up. So the police chief immediately put things in motion to fulfill her dream.
He reached out to a company called Cop Stop to get a custom Freeport uniform specifically designed for Abigail. The Cop Stop owner Rick Fernandez ended up donating the uniform along with a duty rig and gun belt.
Abigail was sworn in surrounded by her family and police officers from around the state.
