Leukemia patient sworn in as honorary deputy

Troopers with Indiana State Police and deputies with the Huntington County Sheriff’s Department made the three hour trek to visit the Ronald McDonald House to see 10 year-old Cincinnati Children’s patient Drew Dorsett. Drew is receiving treatment for leukemia and recovering from a bone marrow transplant.

A native of Huntington, Indiana, Drew attended a camp last summer hosted by Huntington public safety personnel including police officers, firefighters, and more. Since Drew is unable to attend again this year, the officers came to him to make Drew an honorary deputy and one of the camp’s heroes.

WANE-TV shows us how Drew was sworn in and received his own badge.
