Hunter has always felt that he wanted to live his life dedicated to serving others. He currently works in local public schools, and as a home health aide for a child who has a developmental disability. In May of 2017, Hunter was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which called him to fight to make sure everyone in his community would be able to afford the same medications that saved his life.
