A little girl in Victoria has been fighting for her life since just about birth. 'Supergirl Sarah' as many call her, 'was diagnosed with what mysterious illnesses plag her after a long road involving 13 different specialists and so many years with a seriously sick girl and little to no answers.' Sarah even went through a very scary time last year with COVID, where she even coded twice in the hospital.

SHE WANTS WHAT?

During a recent visit to her oncologist, Sarah's nurse asked what she wanted for her birthday, she replied, "badges." This was a very interesting reply for the soon-to-be 8-year-old girl. I imagine the nurse giggling as she replied, "You want what, patches? Most girls want Barbie dolls." 

But Sarah was adamant, she wanted patches for her birthday. In fact, she informed the staff, and her mom, Aimee, she would be getting 100 patches for her birthday.

 Panic mode immediately sets in for her mother who was a little taken aback. Sarah has always had the dream of becoming a cop. Aimee told us, "She has always wanted to be an officer." Her father and both grandfathers were police, and she wants to continue down that path. "Kids change their minds all the time, one week they want to be a cop, the next week it's something different, but Aimee has never changed, she has always wanted to be a cop," her mother told us.

CALLING ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES


Aimee has put out a call for action trying to make her little supergirl's birthday wish come true. Local law enforcement has been a part of Aimee's journey and naturally, hooked Sarah up with some badges, which she can be seen sporting below.

Aimee is now on the hunt for more badges from law enforcement all over. Other law enforcement agencies have reached out and sent Sarah patches and they are making progress towards hitting that goal, however, more badges and patches are still needed.

Sarah is so set to be a police officer she even went down to Houston and went to visit Freeport Police Department - Texas to visit Chief Raymond A Garivey, who has been beyond supportive.

To make her 8th birthday even more special, she is going to receive a super special surprise. Sheriff Marr of Victoria County and Chief Garivey of Freeport PD will be deputizing Sarah at the Beverly Woods Fishing and Hunting with Kids Foundation Banquet right here at the Sun Valley Ranch.
