It had been three years since Jordan High of Los Angeles won a football game. Despite having a high-profile coach with a lengthy list of accomplishments, the Bulldogs could not seem to turn things around.

No more needles, no more hospital visits and, best of all, no more pain for 10-year-old Jordan Presley. The leukemia that began to invade his body three years ago has gone in remission. After recently receiving his last chemotherapy treatment, the Huntington Beach boy celebrated life Saturday with a houseful of friends and family. "I feel good," Jordan said, after giggling and wrestling with classmates in his grandmother's backyard.
