Lucas Blanco, a first-grader from Mundelein, has had a week that he will never forget! 

He has been battling leukemia for the past year, but a few days ago he finished his last chemotherapy treatment!!! 

He rang the bell at Lurie Children's Hospital while wearing a shirt that said, "This is my last chemo day!"

Then to make this milestone even more special, his entire middle school at the Washington Early Learning Center in Mundelein came together for a pep rally.  Everybody was decked out in orange, which is the official leukemia cancer ribbon color and cheered him on for beating the disease!

To Blanco and his parents' surprise the school announced that students had raised $12,000 for charity for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. #GoodVibes
