Friends and family hold parade for young cancer survivor to celebrate last chemo treatment


CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – A young cancer survivor recently finished his last chemo treatment but because of the coronavirus outbreak the celebration was a bit different.

Normally, the last session would be a celebration with lots of hugs, well-wishers, and the survivors get to ring a bell. But because of the social distancing rules in place right now as COVID-19 continues to spread, unfortunately, 11-year-old Luca did not get to ring the bell.

Despite circumstances, his family and friends held a welcome-home parade for him Saturday morning. The Chesterfield Police Department posted via Twitter a video of the celebration.

In the video, a crowd of family and friends drove by his house cheering and clapping for his own happy parade.
