COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Jayden Watts, the Midlands boy who was battling Leukemia in the fall, is now cancer free.

Watts had a bone marrow from his 3-year old sister, Caroline.

Doctors and his family are happy to report Jayden no longer has cancer and is back home in the Midlands.

"It was really a trying time, but yes, I wish I could have kissed his pains away, but it didn't happen," said Jayden's dad, Joseph. "He had a process he had to go through. I thought he was on the road to recovery. I was like, he's halfway through remission, we only have halfway to go , and all of a sudden, about a month later, a month after being halfway through, the doctor said he relapsed."

But Jayden's journey is far from over. He returns to MUSC in Charleston weekly for doctors to check his recovery process.

Jayden will remain at home until about early next year when he will officially be able to return to school.

"Just see what he's been through, and maybe it will bring some sunshine in their life, and they will definitely have hope," Joseph said. "He overcame the battle, now his really journey begins."

Officials at Caughman Road Elementary have set up an account for Jayden's family at T.D. Bank. The school is also accepting donations on behalf of Jayden's Journey.

The school is at 7725 Caughman Road in Columbia.
