Ward Wright is cancer free

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A south Georgia boy fighting cancer has won the battle, and Sunday celebrated with hundreds of his closest friends and family.

You probably remember Ward Wright, we've covered his story for a year and a half.

The 5-year-old was battling Neuroblastoma, but he recently received the news he is cancer free.

His parent's say since his diagnosis the community support has been overwhelming, and they are thankful for all of those who prayed for Ward.

"Now it's our chance to pay it forward and we feel it's our life mission to just do for others what so many have done for us," said Maranda Wright, Ward Wright's Mother.

Ward has been through several cycles of chemotherapy, radiation, and two bone marrow transplants.

The Wright's church, Gillionville Baptist Church, hosted the party.
