Byline: EBONY BATTERSBY Birthday

BRAVER than most adults, Mitchell Luders will be a force to be reckoned with when he enters his teenage years this Sunday, February 8. The young Gladstone local is back in town to celebrate the big 13, taking the weekend to escape from cancer treatment in Brisbane.

Mitchell has been undergoing aggressive treatment for almost four years, after relapsing three times.

But this weekend is about celebration, with Mitchell enjoying the day with his closest mates.

Described as "one of the most inspirational and determined young men I have ever met" by the Cirson family, the birthday wishes are flowing in fast and thick from all corners of our local community.

You and your family never cease to amaze me with your strength, drive and tenacity under continued adversity.

We wish you every happiness and success, and may this be the year that sees the cancer leave your body once and for all, so that you can be the person you were meant to be.

Shine on Mitchell.

Love, the Cirson family.

We all hope you have a wonderful birthday. Welcome to the teenage years buddy.

Lots of love and high fives, from Lochie, Deb, Jasper, Richie and Nate.
