Smithfield Bot, 10, Battling Cancer Gets a Special Escort Home from Hospital, Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Noah Antunes received a hero's welcome home Tuesday, two weeks after being admitted to Hasbro Children's Hospital.

"It's crazy what the climate looks like since the first day I came in," said Noah, 10, from Smithfield.

Noah's parents took him to Hasbro on Oct.1 when the pain he was feeling in his stomach wouldn't go away.

"We just really noticed that he had just no energy," said Noah's dad, David Antunes. "His appetite had gone away and his belly started to stick out a little bit."

Once at Hasbro, Noah was soon diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He's now been through two full rounds of chemo, a lengthy MRI and three spinal taps but you wouldn’t know it from talking with Noah.

Noah said, "The experience is crazy. It's amazing all the support I have for me and my family."
