Bartlesville Boy Learns He's Cancer-Free In Viral Video
BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma - A great moment for one Bartlesville family is going viral.
Earlier this month, Casi Morris posted a cell phone video on Facebook and YouTube of her delivering some good news to her sons.
“Ben! You beat cancer,” she said in the video, to squeals of excitement from Ben and his brother, Ethan.
Ben Morris was diagnosed with leukemia in 2013, and had gone through 1,167 days of treatment at that point.
His first reaction to being told he was cancer free?
“Can I still go to camp?”
Casi says when she checked last week, the video had a few hundred views, but it suddenly jumped to over 49,000 after websites around the world picked up the story and linked to the video.
It was even shared on Tim McGraw’s official Facebook page.
Ben goes for his very last treatment on July 5.
