Cancer survivor uses "Go Fund Me" for denture funds

DELANO, CA (WFLX) - Alex Hunter is a cancer survivor, and after years of chemo and radiation therapy, it caused his teeth to fall out. Even though, the families insurance paid for the procedures, it wouldn't pay for Alex to get dentures.

The family went to the Internet and asked for donations on "Go Fund Me". In less than 20 hours, his family raised the $11,000 they need to get dentures fitted.

Alex was first diagnosed with cancer when he was four and then diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 13. His family says he is now cancer free.
