Hunter was diagnosed with leukemia at an early age, and everything turned upside down for his parents, Amanda and Brandon. Hunter’s love for dinosaurs distracted him through treatment – and his wish to actually *be* a dinosaur when he was 4 years old was exactly what he needed to feel stronger and more confident. Hunter is 9 today and cancer-free.
?? “There were days he was in bed and didn’t want to see anybody. To be able to see him running around like a dinosaur and breaking things and just being a kid is the best thing that a parent would want to see.” – Amanda ?? “It takes something like seeing him absolutely, completely happy to make you not think about [his illness]. It changes everything. There was nothing to worry about that day other than him enjoying himself.” – Brandon
