Two young cancer patients became Jordan’s youngest traffic police officers in the capital of Amman, The Jordan Times reported on Wednesday.

Eight-year-old Yazan Hussein, suffering from muscle cancer, and seven-year-old Kariman Alagmeh, suffering from leukemia, had the chance to live their dream for one day when they joined the traffic department and helped direct traffic at Amman’s busy Interior Ministry Circle intersection, the newspaper reported.

“I felt happy being a traffic officer today because I helped them direct the traffic to avoid car accidents,” Yazan told The Jordan Times.

The children were able to live their dream through a program at the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF).

Through its “Dreams Come True” program, KHCF allows young cancer patients, up to 18 years of age, to live out their hopes.

Dreams include birthday celebrations, granting final wishes for terminally ill patients, granting wishes to underprivileged patients and end-of-treatment parties.

Dreams come true through due to the support of sponsors and donors who keep the program going.

The program was launched in 2006 and aims to “uplift the spirits of pediatric patients,” according to the KHCF website.
