Freeport, TX Honorary Officer Abigail Arias Succumbs to Cancer

'Officer Abigail,' Freeport's famous cancer fighter who met Astros' Jose Altuve, dies at 7

Abigail Arias, the 7-year-old girl from Freeport who gained national prominence for her fight against a rare form of kidney cancer and her desire to be a police officer, finally succumbed to her battle with a Wilms tumor.

Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey was the first to make "Officer Abigail" an honorary cop and became her close friend and supporter. He shared the news of her passing on Freeport PD's Facebook page:

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Abigail Arias, the child who became an officer, a change agent for good and today, an Angel.

Abigail, also known as Officer Arias 758, went to be with our Lord early this morning surrounded by her family and friends."
