On Facebook, Team Jack gives us a little more information:

Today was a great day for Jack. After a morning MRI and a day's worth of medical appointments, we learned that Jack's tumor is stable (in remission) and that his chemotherapy port can be removed. While residual tumor remains, it is inactive as he has been off treatment for three months and it has not grown. While it is likely that Jack will need more treatment in the future, doctors overall feel good about Jack's case and have told us that it is possible, that he is done with treatment altogether. About 1/3 of all cases don't relapse and you are done. We are praying that Jack is in that 1/3.

Regardless, we are so thankful to God for this day. Thank you for all of your love, prayers and support. It truly means the world. We continue to be buoyed by everyone's support.

Oh... YES!

It's been a long two years for the Hoffman family. The initial scare of the diagnosis of brain cancer, then the exhilaration of Jack meeting with Nebraska I-back Rex Burkhead.  The nauseating treatments, and then the unbelievable ride of 2013.  Bo Pelini's offer to let Jack play in the Nebraska spring game, and then all of the fame that followed.  A visit to the White House to talk to President Barack Obama.  Winning the ESPY for Best Moment.

But all of that pales in comparison to the news that his tumor hasn't grown since treatment stopped this summer. Who knows how long this will hold. But for now, it's the most #superDuperAwesome news for a little boy and his family that's bravely fought this diagnosis.
