Saying "thank you" is a habit some children struggle to learn. But Hunter has mastered it, along with the ability to take on anything his doctors ask of him, even when he knows pain may ensue.
The quiet and kind teenager has spent more than his fair share of time in hospitals enduring everything from echo-cardiograms to surgeries for his numerous conditions. Yet he exudes a gentleness and gratitude rarely seen in others his age.
Hunter's older siblings call him their hero, in awe of his bravery. His teachers are charmed with his ability to make them laugh. Instead of being angry with the challenges he faces, he is thankful for all who support him. Hunter truly is the "young gentleman" everyone wants to be around and in his presence, you'd never know he was sick.
