Seven-Year-Old Cancer Patient Welcomed Back to School by Students and Teachers in Ohio

A seven-year-old boy in Barberton, Ohio, who is battling cancer got quite the welcome when he returned to school on April 23. Carly Young shared footage of her son, Tommy, being escorted by the Barberton Police Department back to school at Barberton Elementary East. Students and staff from the school are seen cheering the boy on as he makes his way into school. Tommy was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June 2018 and has missed school to receive treatment for his illness. Young told Storyful that he will continue to receive cancer treatment until September 2021. Credit: Carly Young via Storyful
