Hunter's cancer journey began in July 2010 when he was diagnosed with a common form of childhood leukemia.  Unfortunately, he had to undergo a bone marrow transplant in lieu of the typical treatment plan for children with his disease.  Luckily, his sister Ronin was a perfect match and at age four saved her brother's life.  Today Hunter is cancer-free and deals with a host of issues directly related to his cancer treatment. His story helps us to understand precisely why it's important that research continue to be funded so that newer and better treatment can be created for kids living with these diseases.  Hunter is homeschooled and spends his free time playing Minecraft and video games.  His other interests include Pokémon, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and making folks around him laugh. He does it "for the lols".
