A TEENAGER who overcame bone cancer has been given an excellence award at college after gaining the highest grade in information technology.

Daniel Binney, 18, of Dodworth, was put forward for the award by his teachers for his high grades in level two ICT.

He was presented with the award at a ceremony at the Metrodome last Thursday.

Mum Trish said: "I'm so proud of him. IT is something he's always been interested in and he wants to get into games design."

He underwent nine months gruelling chemotherapy aged 16 and had an operation to replace his femur with a titanium bone.

Trish added: "He was quite laid back about it, although he had 'moments' when he wasn't well. He was so poorly he almost ended up in intensive care. But he took it in his stride."

He's now looking to study a further two-year course in ICT which is the equivalent to A levels, before he heads off to university.
