We like good news around here and today it came in the form of a tweet from Tabitha Burton, wife of former NASCAR driver Ward Burton and mother of current racer Jeb Burton.

Tabitha, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last March, tweeted that she is cancer free.

Celebratory lunch with @WardBurtonWBWF we came here after my 1st appointment and planned to celebrate here when it was over #cancerfree 🎀
