Some fantastic news on Saturday as Avery Harriman, the 7-year-old son of Nebraska assistant coach Chris Harriman, has no evidence of Leukemia following his final biopsy.

Avery’s diagnosis was first revealed on the “Avery’s Army” Facebook page — which is run by Cheryl and Chris Harriman — and later confirmed with NBCSports.com.

After a second bone marrow biopsy for Avery, it came back negative with no Leukemia. “Long road ahead but that’s HUGE news!” Chris Harriman texted to NBCSports.com‘s Rob Dauster.

Avery Harriman made national headlines as he battled Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for the third time. Avery celebrated being able to leave the hospital in a video that went viral on Aug. 28 and received support within college basketball this season from Nebraska, Creighton, and Rhode Island among many others.

The nation showed even more support for Avery through the #AveryStrong campaign and #AveryStrong Day was held Sept. 26 to help raise money for Make-a-Wish Nebraska and Camp CoHoLo.

It’s tremendous news to hear that Avery is continuing to do better and we continue to wish him the best.

Avery Harriman, the young son of Nebraska assistant coach Chris Harriman, is going head-to-head with leukemia for the third time in his seven years.

Last week, Avery got some great news, learning that he would be able to leave the hospital and the chemotherapy treatments for the Labor Day weekend, and he reacted the way you might expect a seven-year old would. That video has gone viral, making it on the Today Show:
