If ever there is a time for a mum to boast about her son’s achievements online, it’s got to be when he has beaten cancer.
US mum Casi Morris has uploaded a video to Youtube capturing the awesome reaction of her son Ben as she tells him, after three years of treatment for leukemia, he has been given the all clear.
Casi opens the video by explaining she has just received results from her son’s bone marrow biopsy.
“It came back totally negative for leukemia and so Ben is cancer free… I’m about to go tell my kid that he beat cancer,” she says.
After first confirming he can still go to camp, Ben’s excitement kicks in and he begins cheering and fist bumping.
Older brother, Ethan, also joins in the celebrations running in circles chanting ‘yes’.
The touching video has been viewed more 70,000 times.
Casi says she filmed the moment for everyone who had followed and supported them through Ben’s treatment.
“We felt like they had earned the right to be in that moment when we finally got to tell him ‘you did it buddy’,” she tells Fox23 News.
Ben summed up his feelings as “happy”.
“I did it for three years, it was a really long time, we thought I might not make it but I just didn’t give up,” he says.
