DALLAS - A Texas boy who is battling cancer is spending his time getting to know his favorite profession: law enforcement.
He is traveling the nation and being sworn in as an honorary police officer.
There’s a new officer in town, and he’s a 10-year-old boy from Houston.
Davarjae Daniel, or DJ, as everyone calls him, is a very determined and brave young man. He’s battling terminal brain and spinal cancer.
He’s also on a mission to be sworn in as an officer with as many departments as possible.
His goal to increase awareness of childhood cancer and to honor the legacy of a 7-year-old friend who died of cancer. She wanted to become a law enforcement officer.
"It’s a transformational moment for DJ, but it’s also a moment to bring us together as a community," Pastor Ricky Butler said.
Friday’s mass swearing in program at St. Luke Community Methodist Church in Dallas was a moving moment for many, including DJ’s dad.
One by one, the agencies welcomed DJ Friday, making his day, and seemingly theirs too.
