6-year-old Geauga County boy beats leukemia; classmates celebrate final chemo treatment

POSTED 8:07 PM, JANUARY 8, 2020, BY JENNIFER JORDAN

NEWBURY, Ohio (WJW) – There was a standing ovation inside St. Helen Catholic School in Newbury on Wednesday for a 6-year-old boy who has now won the biggest battle of his young life.

"He's doing great! Yeah, he's feeling better. A lot of his side effects over the years involved his legs from the steroids and he's doing great," his father John Zippay said.

1. That was such a great video.

I am watching the help for Tornado victims in Dayton.A warehouse full of really nice clothes for those who are still trying to rebuild their homes and lives.

On Spectrum 1 they announced a plan for state wide passenger rail for 80% of Ohio using existing rails.

I grew up in the railroad era. Wouldn’t that be great again?

3. His parents say that last three years have been anything but easy.

My best friend lost a child to leukemia many years ago. She used to say that there was no hell after death because for a family with a terminally ill child, they lived in hell on earth every day. She has also since passed, and I strongly believe they are both together now in a much, much better place.

4. Cute little boy.

Thank goodness he beat this. His parents really suffered, too. Hopefully, this is final, he is cured.
