Boy dying of cancer sworn into Ukrainian police

With just days to live, a young boy's dream came true

Ten-year-old Oleksandr Andriychuk is terminally ill with brain cancer

He enrolled in his local police force in a special ceremony

It happened after police surprised him outside his home

Location: Chernivtsi, Ukraine


"We knew that this child has a dream and is waiting for a miracle to happen. He told us that the policeman is his cult hero and that he will become a policeman when he grows up. I am impressed that so many police officers from all over Ukraine replied to my Facebook post, they asked where the child lives. They sewed a uniform with a breast badge for Andriychuk."
