FORT WORTH, Texas - Adriana
Nixon is 6 years old who loves school, softball, basketball, and cheer.
She is the youngest child in a family of six. On July 19, 2019, Adriana
was diagnosed with a very rare form of liver cancer in children, hepatocellular
carcinoma. The odds of a child getting hepatocellular carcinoma is less
than one in 1 million. Adriana is currently undergoing chemotherapy to
get the tumor to shrink and undergo a liver transplant.
To boost Adriana's spirits, the Fort Worth Police Department (FWPD) will
officially name Adriana as an Honorary Police Officer on Jan. 9, 2019.
The ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. at 505 W. Felix St. Adriana,
Adriana's family, and members of the FWPD Command Staff and officers will be on
hand to officially 'swear-in' Adriana.
