Hunter loves to watch movies, play with his brother Parker, swim and read. These are all pretty normal things for a young boy, but early in life Hunter faced a lot of medical hurdles.
Hunter was born with Down syndrome and has suffered from complications with his heart. He has had much needed heart surgery, a tonsillectomy, a tongue reduction and multiple other procedures to save his life.
Hunter’s family would do anything for him, but also knew the medical bills would be high and expected a tough road ahead. To their surprise, when they opened a series of bills they found out help was available. Kosair Charities stepped in and lifted some of the financial burden off of the family’s shoulders so they could focus on what was important, getting Hunter healthy.
Hunter could not be a happier kid these days and his spirit is contagious. He puts a smile on the face of everyone he meets.
