Boy battling cancer made honorary deputy for day

Sawyer Davidson, 7, loves law enforcement


UNION COUNTY, Fla. – Seven-year-old Sawyer Davidson was made an honorary deputy sheriff Tuesday.

The Union County Sheriff's Office learned about Sawyer, who is fighting for his life from an aggressive cancerous brain tumor, and wanted to uplift him and his family by dedicating a day to him.

Sawyer has undergone lots of chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries and many other medical procedures to save his life. 

His family moved close to Gainesville from Texas to give Sawyer the great medical care that he needs.

UCSO learned Sawyer loves law enforcement and in joint efforts with the Department of Corrections, Reception Medical Center, Bradford County Sheriff's Office, State Fire Marshal, UCSO Emergency Management and UC Fire Department, they put on a show for Sawyer.

The fun started with law enforcement officers putting on their blue lights and sirens with Sawyer leading the charge to the RMC Training Building.

Sawyer was met by many law enforcement and correctional officers.

He saw displays from SWAT and Special Response Units along with K-9 units and emergency operation vehicles. 

UCSO was honored to be a part of this special day for Sawyer and his family.

Sawyer has an upcoming experimental treatment and UCSO prays it will give him the healing he needs.
