VIDEO: 10-Year-Old Cancer Patient Sworn in as Honorary Texas Officer

Despite living with the nightmare of cancer, a 10-year-old boy's dream of being a police officer became a reality on Thursday as he was sworn in as an honorary Frisco (Texas) Police Department officer for the day.

Kyle Murray was given a hat and official badge as part of his swearing in ceremony. He'd always wanted to be a police officer.

He was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 3 and went through treatment.

He was a five-year survivor, but was re-diagnosed in July of last year with a secondary cancer. He's now in Hospice care, KDFW TV reports.

“It's very special, I think for him, especially on September 11,” said Murray's mother, Elizabeth. “It's very special and meaningful.”

I was with the Bexar County Sheriffs office (Tx.) for 18 years and worked Patrol for 15 of those years. I was also a FTO (Field Training Officer for 10 of those years and unfortunately had to retire due to medical issues. If I were still an active duty Officer, I would be honored to have him as a partner and to be his FTO..He could ride with me anyday...Godspeed and WELCOME to the Brotherhood...!!!
