POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A young boy battling cancer is returning home to Mason County, West Virginia for hospice care.

Community members lined the streets of Point Pleasant Wednesday afternoon to welcome home 10-year-old Lewis Bryant from the hospital. They held up signs and cheered as the ambulance passed through town.

Lewis was diagnosed with stage 4 osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer, on March 3, 2018. His positive attitude, even at such a young age, continues to inspire those around him.

After being discharged from Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus Wednesday morning, a Point Pleasant paramedic drove Lewis home. A motorcade followed behind them to escort Lewis on his journey.
