Hunter was born in January 2012 and found abandoned when he was 2 years old with a large mass on his abdomen that was sensitive to the touch. The doctors diagnosed Hunter with Stage III Wilms’ tumor, a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children. Hunter underwent surgery in September of 2014 and received seven rounds of post-operative chemotherapy until June of 2015. Since then, Hunter has had stable conditions and lived at the orphanage.
