Karma Little might be small, but she is a big fighter.
Little is a Georgia native staying in New York while she fights stage 4 cancer with help from the amazing doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The 6-year-old has endured several surgeries, which cost her to lose half her stomach and one of her kidneys.
“This past trial that we did last month finally made some breakthrough with her. We had some shrinkage. We’re doing the trial again this month and she’s hanging in there,” said Jennifer Little, Karma’s mother.
During a round of chemotherapy (one round of far too many), Karma met New York City Police Department officer Sara Moran in the hospital.
“She says to me, ‘oh my goodness, I didn’t know girls could be cops.’ She said ‘are you real?’,” said Moran. “So, I said ‘absolutely’, and from that moment on, we just developed such a strong bond.”
To make this little girl’s day, the NYPD rolled out the blue carpet for Karma this past Friday. Karma was made an honorary officer of the Central Park Precinct, took the oath, attended roll call, patroled the finish line of this weekend’s marathon, and of course, met some of NYC’s other outstanding female officers.
