Juan becomes a hero on his wish day when he wishes to be a police officer

Juan becomes a hero

“ Becoming a Hero ”

  • Juan , 7

    • Leukemia
    • To be a police officer
  • Wish to be

Juan became a hero on the day he wished to become a police officer. Now he knows how to keep his community safe and will someday protect and serve when he grows up.

  • Everyone watches Juan become a hero

  • After receiving his badge, Juan is now a police officer

  • Juan's proud family and friends watch him become a police officer.

Juan dreamed of becoming a police officer one day. His wish came true when the Bryan Police Department in Bryan, Texas came together as a community. After he was sworn in he got to learn what it was like to be a real policeman. He learned what a CID Detective was, how to catch a bad guy,  and how to drive an armored truck. When he first arrived at the police station he was shy and unsure of what to expect... but by the of the day he was all smiles for the whole community to see. Now when he grows up, he wants to serve and protect his community like a real hero! 

The day went GREAT! Juan had so much fun. We saw our department come together for this little boy and his family. It was so rewarding to see how special Juan felt. He was shy but truly enjoyed himself. Thank you so much for allowing me to help coordinate this. ”

— Rebecca, Crime Scene Investigator with the Bryan Police Department
