10-year-old Utahn gets police escort for first school day since starting cancer treatment
SALEM, Utah — A Utah boy had a special sendoff for his first day of school.
Luke Fowles, 10, has only been into the classroom a few times since he began treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer, in February 2020.
Officers with Salem Police and the Utah County Sheriff’s Office escorted him Monday as he returned to in-person learning at Foothills Elementary School.
“Not very often do we get the chance to let people see a happy story,” Utah County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. “This young man, Luke Fowles, has been through a lot in the last almost a year and a half.”
“He said on the ride over here that he feels like such a celebrity,” Luke’s dad, Tim Fowles, said.
Luke’s mom has been chronicling his battle on Instagram.
