TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) — Taylor police and fire pulled out all the stops to make a little girl battling stage 4 neuroblastoma feel extra special.

Roza, 4, was diagnosed in late January with the disease, and is preparing for her fourth round of chemotherapy. Luckily, before she heads back to the hospital, Roza has a few great memories thanks to the Taylor Police Department, Taylor Fire Department and Heritage Park Petting Farm.

A post on the city of Taylor's Facebook page outlined the special day Roza had on May 3.

The young girl and her family were greeted by members of the police and fire departments, along with Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars.

Roza, who loves police and fire vehicles, was given a ride around Heritage Park in a fire truck. She received numerous gifts and toys, including a police uniform made just for her and Detroit Tigers tickets. Roza and her family also had a pizza party.
