This six-year-old finished chemotherapy, his school classmates welcomed him back with a standing ovation

By ITS Education Asia


A six-year-old boy from the US who has been battling cancer got a surprise standing ovation from his classmates when he returned to school after finishing his last round of chemotherapy.

John Oliver Zippay has been in and out of school for three years after he was diagnosed at age 3 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2016. On December 27, John Oliver got his last round of chemotherapy.

To celebrate John Oliver's return to school in Newbury, Ohio, his classmates welcomed him back with applause, smiles, high-fives and cheers, as seen on video posted on Facebook.

All of us at ChalkFace hope John has a full recovery.
