Cancer sufferer Logan Wells returned home from Brisbane last Thursday to spend the weekend at home with his family. He is seen here on his favourite swing-set with sister Sarah, father Grant, dog Diesel and mother Lisa.

SIX-YEAR-OLD Logan Wells has received the best news in more then seven months since he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in January this year.

After enduring months of tests and treatment for the cancer known as Rhabdomyosarcoma, Logan from Cannonvale was told last week that he will be able to return home from the Royal Brisbane Children's Hospital a lot sooner than first expected.

He was allowed to come home to his Whitsunday home last weekend to spend time with his family which made Father's Day extra special for his Dad, Garth Wells.

Logan's mother Lisa Wells said she was overwhelmed with the news and hoped to be back in time for Logan's 7th birthday on December 31.

She also said she was proud of her son who continued to put up an inspirational fight day in, day out.

“Logan has come around in leaps and bounds,” she said.

“His spirit is amazing.

“To see him like this is our best dream.”

In recent weeks Logan's spirit has lifted as he now has his eyes set on having a huge party upon his return home to the Whitsundays.

As a result of his positive outlook, the lively character has put on more than two kilograms in recent weeks and is looking better then ever since his diagnosis.

What made Logan's return home even more special was that he was able to spend Fathers Day with his dad Garth.

“I couldn't ask for anything more,” Garth said.

“It's all I want.”

Logan was also happy to be spending the day back in the Whitsundays with his family.

“Dad said he would take me fishing,” Logan said.

The Wells family also said they would like to thank the entire community for their on-going support over the past seven months.
