You May Need a Tissue

Written by

Is there anything better than seeing a video of a soldier surprising a family member with a unexpected return home or in this case, a young man ringing a bell of victory after enduring years of chemotherapy? Congrats to 19 year old Matt Driscoll who has been battling Leukemia for over three years. His treatments done, Matt received a hero's welcome as he strode down the hall of Akron Children's Hospital to proudly ring the bell signifying an end to his chemotherapy. Videos such as these have a special effect on folks like me whose lives have been forever changed by cancer. So congratulations Matt! Here's to years of good health to you. Cut & paste the URL below into your browser, grab a tissue, and watch the video. It's OK to say funny things like "must be something in my eyes!" Yes, they're called tears and they are tears of joy for this young man, his family and friends.
