Abigail Arias, 6, who is battling cancer, stands on a chair and is sworn in as a Texas police officer - complete with a donut.

Raw video: Freeport Police Department in Texas holds a ceremony to celebrate Abigail Arias, the city's new honorary officer. The little girl fought off a kidney cancer only to have it return, and doctors have told her parents there is no cure.

On Thursday, the Freeport Police Department made that dream come true by making her an honorary officer.

"I have cancer. The bad guys are in my lungs", Abigail told KTRK-TV.

The chief administered the oath to the girl, who wore a custom-made police uniform, and then gave her a big hug.

Abigail Arias has been fighting the disease for two years. "Extremely tough. We cried for weeks".

"The chemo and radiation hasn't worked and basically the family is now leaving it in God's hands and praying for a miracle", Garivey told CNN. Despite that struggle, Abigail says she still wanted to become a police officer.

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

After her day as an officer ended, Abigail swore she would keep her promise for Garivey.

So Garivey reached out to an organization in Pearland called Cop Stop, which was able to make a custom Freeport police uniform for Abigail. "I rung the bell, but now this cancer is coming back". "You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is".

Uniformed officers from a number of agencies attended the ceremony.

Abigail said after she was made an officer: "It felt neat inside of my heart and in my body, I felt excitement and all of love".
