This is the cutest thing you’ll see today!

Scream actor, Matthew Lillard, known for the Scream movies and Scooby-Doo, took to Twitter on Wednesday to share that Coco, a neighbour’s daughter, had returned home after finishing her last chemo treatment. Everyone in the neighbourhood lined the streets to welcome her home.

“People may need some goodness right now,” the 50-year-old said in his tweet.

“Coco finished her last chemo treatment yesterday. 9 months later and Ewing sarcoma can SUCK IT!”

“Our community threw an impromptu welcome home party for our favourite warrior. Leave a comment below . . . let her know how radical she is! #COCO,” the actor went on to say.

He later had to make it clear that Coco isn’t his daughter but a neighbour’s daughter, as initial media headlines mistakenly said Coco was his.

“Coco is NOT my daughter. She’s a family friend . . . sorry that was so unclear!” he tweeted.
