SUNNYVALE, Calif. — A police department made a young boy’s dream come true.

Myles O’Connell, 7, was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an inoperable and incurable cancerous brain tumor, according to KTVU. He’s been undergoing radiation treatment since his diagnosis in October, and is wheelchair-bound most of the time. His dream is to become a police officer like his uncle Tim, who’s a public safety officer at Sunnyvale PD.

Last week, Myles’ dream came true. A program called Cops Care and the Taylor Family Foundation heard Myles’ story and helped make it possible for him to fulfill his dream. Miles was sworn in as an honorary officer for the Sunnyvale PD on Thursday – complete with an official uniform, a badge, name tag and hat.

Myles’ mother said the young boy still has a tough road ahead but the ceremony lifted his spirits.
