A 9-year old girl with terminal brain cancer was named an honorary member of the NYPD in Forest Hills yesterday.
Police honored Aniya Ardon, a 9-year-old with an astroblastoma tumor, at the 68-40 Austin Street station yesterday. The child posed for photos with police, including the commanding officer of Patrol Borough Queens North (PBQN) Juanita Holmes, and sat behind the wheel of a police car.
Ardon has battled with the cancer for the past two years, according to an Instagram post by the New York Police Department’s Hispanic Society.
