A nine-year-old boy from New York with a rare brain tumor is getting to fulfill his dream and be sward in as an honorary police officer.

“While most kids are getting back to school, 9-year-old Colin Hayward Toland is getting ready for an even more exciting change – his first day as honorary police officer with the Ithaca, New York, Police Department.

While undergoing treatment this summer, Colin expressed interest in working for the police. He initially suggested he could be a receptionist, because he likes coffee but is “not so good at stopping crime,” his mother, Tamiko Toland, told ABC News.

“Have they ever hired a cop who has a brain tumor?” Toland remembers Colin asking. He then resolved to become the first, she said.”

How awesome is that!
