Good News For Viral Video Star

Posted: Updated:

There is some good news this morning for an inspiring Nebraska boy, who's battling brain cancer. Doctors say that the pint-sized football player's cancer is in remission.

The original video of Jack Hoffman's touchdown run launched him to Internet stardom. The video shows him running with all his strength and courage to score a touchdown for the University of Nebraska in April. The video of his 69-yard run garnered more than 8.4 million views on YouTube and was replayed on many television networks and stations.

He even met President Barack Obama, with the help of Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, who set up the visit. The president gave jack a new football, and told him he was proud of him.

Even though Jack's cancer is in remission, doctors warn it could come back. However, his family says they won't live the rest of their lives in fear.
