Manlius Sergeant Ken Hatter is now cancer free after an 11-year battle with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
His wife, Lisa, confirmed the good news with NewsChannel 9 on Thursday.
Hatter had received a bone marrow transplant in November.
“We are so thankful for the community support. It will be a long road of him learning to live with his new immune system, but this is one less battle to fight,” Lisa says.
“We are all thankful for the prayers, meals, donations and kind words. The encouragement has made the journey that much easier,” she added
The Hatters plan to continue to hold bone marrow drives every year to help other families going through this battle.
