Dear MEL Topic Readers,

After a 6-year-old finished chemotherapy, his classmates welcomed him back with a standing ovation

Leukemia is a cancer of the body’s blood-forming tissues. In people with leukemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells, which don’t function properly. Some forms of leukemia are more common in children, and others occur mostly in adults. Though the exact cause of Leukemia hasn’t been identified, it seems to develop from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Treatment for leukemia could include chemotherapy, biological therapy, radiation therapy, and stem cell transplant.

A three-year-old boy in Ohio, USA was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2016. He had been treated with different types of chemotherapy and procedures for the next three years until December last year. During the period, he was in and out of school because of the treatment he had to take and the severe side effects he suffered from. After those difficult three years when he returned to school, he was welcomed back with cheers, applause and a standing ovation by his schoolmates and teachers. What a wonderful treatment after difficult times!

Enjoy reading the article about a boy and his family who underwent hardships of cancer.
