One Milton Elementary student is now cancer-free!

Yesterday, Colin Mcgee rang a bell at the hospital, symbolizing that he no longer has to undergo chemotherapy.

Colin was surrounded by family, friends, school and hospital staff at his “No Mo’ Chemo” party.

The fifth grader was also surprised with a cake and presents to celebrate the milestone.

Watch Colin’s reaction in the video above!

Last month, KATC reported Colin received the chance to meet Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine during a taping of The Voice in Los Angeles. The trip was made possible by Dreams Come True. The nonprofit organization gives kids with life-threatening illnesses a chance to make their dreams become a reality.
