HOUSTON, TX - A heartbreaking follow up to a story we first told you about last fall: a 6-year-old whose Make a Wish dreams came true when she was sworn in as a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper has died.

In October, Houston's law enforcement community pulled out all the stops to make Kyssi Andrews' wish of becoming a trooper come true. The little girl was diagnosed with Wilm's Tumor, a form of kidney cancer, which was especially aggressive.

Kyssi's mom Marla posted this weekend that she "won her battle with cancer, grew angel wings and went home to be with the Lord."
