Atkinson, Neb. -- After a whirlwind four months, Jack Hoffman is ready for the school year and a return to a more normal schedule.
The school year comes after Jack scored a 69-yard touchdown in Nebraska's spring game in April, went to Disneyland and won an ESPY in July and finished chemo in June.
Now in the third week of August, Jack begins his first full week of school as a second grader at West Holt Elementary School in Atkinson.
With his Phineas and Ferb backpack and all his school supplies, Jack's ready for his favorite class.
The 7-year-old said, "Probably PE and recess."
As for the Disney cartoon, Jack said he like Phineas the best because "Ferb he doesn't say much."
In June, Jack finished a grueling chemotherapy treatment to shrink a cancerous brain tumor. The treatment schedule caused him to miss 55 days of first grade last year.
Jack's dad Andy said, "A lot of that was when his counts got down in cold and flu season, in part because we kept him back because his counts got so low he kind of got at risk."
Andy added, "We were always on high alert, calling the school, we'd call and ask how many kids are out sick today?"
"We did chemo on Fridays, so he'd have Saturday and Sunday to recover, then try and hit Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of school and then start the process all over again."
The Hoffman's say they worked closely with the school to make sure Jack was never behind in class.
Jack said, "When I went down to Omaha, my teacher gave me my homework."
Andy said about 60 days after his last treatment Jack is doing well. He added, "There's no guarantees there's going to be a relapse or he's in remission so we're cautiously optimistic."
Now that Jack's done with Chemo one of the things the Hoffman's say they're most looking forward to this year is spending Friday nights at the football stadium, cheering on the West Holt Husky's.
Andy said, "We missed quite a few West Holt Football games last year, we absolutely love high school football, that's one thing we're really looking forward to is having our high school football Friday nights not interfere with chemo."
With chemo finished, Jack now has a lot more energy to things like play games, go to the pool and master flips on the trampoline in his backyard.
Andy said, "He's got a great energy level, he's liking food again, and that's been a real plus, there's a lot of foods that used to be his favorites that when he was doing chemo, he wouldn't even eat them."
And when it comes to food and lunchtime at West Holt Elementary, Jack has a few favorites.
"Chicken nuggets and a grilled chicken sandwich, actually a crispy chicken sandwich."
Jack said he's just looking forward to picking out the game on his birthday in PE class and hanging out with his friends.
Jack will have another check up in October and if that goes well, the Hoffmans will schedule a surgery to take out his chemo port. Andy said that will be exciting because then he'll finally get to do things like swim in the river--something his hasn't done in two summers.
The Hoffmans are also busy preparing for the month of September which is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. They designed a new gold shirt that says "Fight For a Cure" and has a red Husker N on it.
They hope Husker fans will continue to support Team Jack and raise awareness not only for pediatric brain cancer, but all childhood cancers.
