Abigail’s doctors said “it’s time for her to enjoy some life.” Couldn’t agree more. She got a Texas DPS helicopter ride from the police department to her school and picked up by the entire afternoon watch.

Abigail told a local TV station that “the bad guys are in my lungs and I’ve always wanted to be a cop.”

“Well you can see that dreams do come true” posted on the departments Facebook page. “Continued prayers for Abigail and her family.”
