Local Residents & Santa Welcome Back Ivan Roskos from St. Jude Children's Hospital (Videos)

Around two dozen people welcomed Ivan Roskos and his family home Wednesday afternoon. Roskos returned from St. Jude Children's Hospital after having 30 rounds of radiation and 2 brain surgeries to combat his Craniopharyngioma diagnosis.

Even Santa came from the North Pole to welcome Ivan home, and he brought Ivan duct tape. Andrew Pierce of Cortland explained on Facebook that the story behind the duct tape is that Ivan likes to make crafts with duct tape, and that he wants to eventually sell the crafts as a way to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
