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.”
