In March 2013, 4-year-old Ben Morris learned he had cancer. In June 2016, his mother, Casi, filmed Ben’s reaction as he learned that he is now cancer-free!

The road has been a difficult one for the Morris family. Though they tried to maintain a sense of normalcy, they all had to endure the stress and pain of this disease for years.

Casi told Upworthy, “Have you ever had a kid reach for the stove or step off a curb and a car is coming? That moment when your stomach clenches, adrenaline dumps, right before you throw yourself in front of the danger? That’s what it is to have a kid with cancer, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To say we were a mess is an understatement.”

Once the relieved mother heard Ben’s latest lab results, she knew the moment would be worth filming and remembering forever. Now, the video has been viewed over 770,000 times from people around the world.

Casi’s YouTube caption reads, “After 1,167 days of treatment, Ben got the news that his bone marrow showed no signs of cancer and he will be able to end treatment in 34 days.”

Watch the video here, but as a fair warning, it’s impossible to not tear-up when you hear her say, “Ben, you beat cancer!”
