Girl battling cancer gets to be FBI agent for a day

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A girl battling cancer got a break from treatments on Thursday to spend a day as an FBI agent.

Mary Elizabeth Tankersley, 11, underwent a radical procedure as part of her cancer treatment. Doctors removed a section of her femur and knee and rotated the lower portion of her leg.

On Thursday, FBI Atlanta showed her how polygraph tests work and how investigators process crime scenes.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta helped host the special day for Mary Elizabeth.
