6 Year-Old Fighting Cancer Gets Sworn-In as Police Officer

Published

on

A young girl was sworn in as a police officer at just 6-years-old while fighting terminal cancer.

“Abigail Arias, from Freeport, Texas, is battling terminal cancer. She has Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer in children that doctors say has left Abigail with a heartbreaking prognosis. At just 6 years old, she had big dreams of becoming a police officer to help fight “the bad guys” living inside her tiny body,” according to Liftable.

Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr met Abigal in December where she told Chief Garivey that she wanted to be a police officer. The Police Chief took interest in Arias’ story and was determined to help the little girls dreams come true.

“Her story brought police officers from all over today into one room and it was a magical moment for all who were in attendance,” said an emotional Chief Garivey.

Congratulations to the newest member of the Freeport Police Department, Honorary Officer Abigail Rose Arias! She took an oath today to continue fighting the “bad guys” until she is cancer free! What a great day for the City of Freeport, and our Law Enforcement Family from all over this great state, who were in attendance! Also a special thanks to Rick Fernandez owner of Cop Stop Inc. for the wonderful FPD uniform and duty rig! #thinblueline Ruben Arias

While Abigail’s condition is slowly deteriorating her small body, Garivey has faith in her strength, “the chemo and radiation hasn’t worked and basically the family is now leaving it in God’s hands and praying for a miracle.”

Arias’ parents are enjoying their time with their young daughter after some discouraging news from doctors. “They basically said it’s time to enjoy some life,” her mother Ilene told CNN.

Abigail’s courage and strength inspired members of the Freeport Police Department in Texas to attend her swearing-in ceremony. The determination to follow her dreams, even at a young age, is a characteristic that will aid Abigail in her fight against cancer.

In my 27 years of being a cop, today was no doubt one of the proudest moments ever. Abigail Rose Arias, thank you for…

One of the most endangered animals in the United States has been observed in a national park that is part of its historical range. The National Park and U.S. Fish and Wildlife services confirmed in a joint statement that six California Condors have been seeing flying above the Sequoia National Park in Eastern California.

The birds were also photographed by park personnel.

A biologist of the Santa Barbara Zoo confirmed that specimens being GPS-tracked by the zoo had been geolocated in the national park.

We use GPS transmitters to track the birds’ movement, which can be over hundreds of miles on a single day,” said Dave Meyer. “On this particular day we documented the birds’ signals around Giant Forest, and we are excited that park employees observed the birds and confirmed their use of this important historic habitat.

The Sequoia National Park consists of more then 400,000 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. The rare vultures, which feed upon carrion, had once been known to nest in the great Sequoia trees of the park, before disappearing from the habitat around the 1970’s.

The California Condor is a New World vulture, and an exceptionally large bird, the largest native to North America. It range once broadly consisted of the entire western United States, spanning from Canada to Baja California in Mexico.

It had been declared to be extinct in the wild in 1987, but a preservation program to save the species has proved successful in reintroducing captive individuals to the wild in northern Arizona and Utah. Poaching, habitat destruction, and poisoning from manmade chemicals have severely eroded the population of the birds in the wild, and it’s currently listed as critically endangered. Preservation efforts have increased the wild population of the California Condor from merely 22 animals to more than 400 today.
