A 6 year old battling cancer has been sworn in as the newest junior special agent on Wednesday.

Abigail Arias was diagnosed with a form of pediatric kidney cancer for which she has undergone numerous surgeries and chemotherapy treatments.

On Wednesday, she was in a class of her own to receive a U.S. Secret Service salute in the Houston Field Office to swear in special agent Abigail.

Abigail's dream is to become a police officer. After she volunteered her time handing out gifts to other children during the holiday season as part of Freeport's Blue Santa program, her dream became a reality.

She was sworn in as an honorary officer of the Freeport Police Department, where she was promised to continue fighting the "bad guys."

Abigail was also inducted as a honorary Texas Ranger at the state capitol in February.

"Abigail has proven to be "worthy of trust an confidence" - our highest compliment - in her fight against cancer," the Secret Service tweeted.
