Avery Harriman Gets Some Good News

This is the moment 7-year-old Avery, who is battling leukaemia for the third time, was told he would be able to leave hospital and head home this week.

Avery is the son of Nebraska Huskers assistant basketball coach Chris Harriman.

He had been undergoing intense chemotherapy for 23 days.

Unfortunately, Harriman told CBS, his son won’t be home for long.

Next week he heads back to hospital for a bone marrow biopsy, and if tests show the cancer has gone will undergo a bone marrow transplant. If not, the chemotherapy will begin again.

Harriman says Avery is in good spirits though, and that a stranger from California named Andrew Cussen who donated bone marrow for the boy’s first transplant is willing to step up and help out if needed again.

Doctors first diagnosed Avery with cancer in 2008 when he was just 2 years old.

Having then gone into remission, the young boy relapsed in October 2012, and again last month after what had appeared to have been a successful transplant.
