Cancer survivor returns to Priceville Elementary for class

PRICEVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - It was the first day of class for Morgan County Schools but for one third-grade student it was extra special.

After the first day of school last year, Braxton Voss was diagnosed with leukemia.  Braxton returned to class Thursday.

Braxton continues to undergo chemotherapy once a month.  His mother, Dori, tells WHNT News 19 she's thankful Braxton was able to return to class.

"It's a blessing that Braxton got to be here today because we were told last month in the hospital that he wouldn't get to start school. Thankfully his counts came up.  He's very excited, he gets to be here with his brother," said Dori Voss.

Braxton was just happy to be back.  "I knew it was going to be fun because I have a new teacher and I'm going to make a lot of new friends," Braxton said.
