Eight-year-old Josiah Carel is celebrating the end of 58 weeks of cancer treatment.

To mark the special moment, Josiah rang the bell in the Riley Hospital for Children hematology/oncology clinic surrounded by his doctor and care team.

Josiah was diagnosed with a low-grade glioma tumor in March 2022. He had been dealing with persistent headaches. One day, the headaches were accompanied by vomiting. Josiah’s mom took him to the emergency room and eventually doctors uncovered the tumor in his brain.

While Josiah still has a few more steps in his cancer journey, this family is thrilled to be done with chemotherapy.
