A video that was uploaded on YouTube by CBS News shows the six-year-old boy walking into a hall full of his classmates and teachers.

As soon as the boy goes out of the door, the crowd that had lined up heartily applaud and greet the cancer survivor as he walks by and waves at them.

The cancer survivor, nicknamed “J.O.” is also warmly welcomed back to his school with a banner saying: “Congratulations J.O.!”

The video which was uploaded Friday has now been viewed more than 7,700 times.
