The mother of Arrowtown's Angus Beaton hopes he and the family will be home for Christmas after the young cancer patient finishes his radiation treatment and chemotherapy in December.

The 5-year-old was earlier this year diagnosed with soft-tissue cancer. The cancer had spread to his lungs and various bone sites, which meant months of radiation and chemotherapy treatment lay ahead of him.

He is now on his last course of treatment and while doctors have not indicated an outcome, Fritha Beaton said the chemotherapy had not hit her son as hard this time around.

The family of four had relocated to Christchurch over the winter so Angus had easier access to Christchurch Hospital, but hoped to be back in Arrowtown for good at the beginning of the 2013 school year.
