going home

BETHANY, Okla.- After a six-year battle with cancer, an Oklahoma boy battling leukemia is finally going home.

Chason Andrew, 13, has lived at the Children’s Center for six years.

At just 7-years-old, he was diagnosed with leukemia.

Since then, he’s been in a up-and-down battle with the disease.

In the past six years, he’s gone through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, as well as a bone marrow transplant.

Chason was discharged from the Children’s Center and doctors say he has exceeded their expectations.

Right now, his cancer is in remission and his family is hopeful that he will soon be able to return to school.
