A young boy fighting Leukemia was sworn in as an honorary Front Royal police officer.
Orion Perry is 8-years-old and was diagnosed with Leukemia on July 1, 2017. His mom says they have about another year and a half to go as they continue to fight Orion’s battle with cancer. His second-grade teacher recently organized a Relay for Life walk with a local #GoldTogether team to honor Orion and make him feel like a superhero for the day.
“Living in a town like front royal it just makes you feel special, something like this when everyone reaches out. It makes a bad thing much nicer,” said Orion’s father Jeff Perry.
Orion says he overjoyed and hopes to be a police officer when he grows up.
