FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) — A 9-year-old terminally ill boy became an honorary Fort Worth police officer Thursday morning.
In July 2018, Carter Escobar was diagnosed with stage 4 alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of soft tissue cancer that occurs most often in the arms, legs, chest and abdomen. After a year and a half of chemotherapy, follow-up scans showed his cancer returned and that there were no longer any life-saving treatments available for him.
