Emotional moment schoolboy Elliot, 6, celebrates finishing cancer treatment

This is the emotional moment when a little boy who has battled cancer for more than half his life has ended his treatment.

The heartwarming video features Elliot Boomer ringing the bell at a Worcestershire hospital to mark the conclusion of his chemotherapy.

Elliot, from Bromsgrove, is only six, but has been undergoing treatment for cancer for three and a half years.

He was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia and has since been on chemotherapy and other treatments at the Children’s Cancer Clinic at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

As is the tradition for all cancer patients in the hospital – young and old – they ring a bell after their treatment to mark the momentous occasion.

Nurses and doctors watched with delight as happy little Elliot skipped down the hall, ringing the bell not once, but twice.

He read a poem and then could jump up and down in excitement and clap their hands in delight as the staff gathered in the hallway and cheered him on.

The brave little boy then jumped up and down, clapped his hands and shouted “Thank you!” before he walked into his mother’s arms.

Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust tweeted a video of the glorious moment, saying, “After spending more than half his life on cancer, it’s no surprise that Elliot was excited to finally ring our End of Treatment Bell!

“Six-year-old Elliot has been undergoing treatment for acute lymphocytic leukemia in our pediatric cancer clinic for the past three and a half years.”
