Colorado teen with cancer becomes honorary police officer

By  | 

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CNN)-- A Colorado teen battling brain cancer has only had one wish most of his young life …to be a police officer.

Trevor Kling, 13, of Lakewood says he has always wanted to serve and protect. So on Wednesday - he was one of the "men in blue" at the Lakewood Police Department.

"You've got to get a good education so you can do well in life,” he said.

Kling was diagnosed with brain cancer two years ago.

He only missed one day of school while having chemotherapy and radiation treatments…and he has a 3.87 GPA.

To honor his bravery and positivity, Kling got to be an officer for a day.

He took the Lakewood police oath, got a badge, a police shirt and went on a ride-along.

There’s one thing that gets him through the tough times.
"Hope that I'll get better,” he said.
