SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Dwayne and Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital of Savannah saw over 70,000 children and adolescents last year.
One of those kids was Hunter Stanfield, a young outdoorsman from Glennville, whose cancer diagnosis took him for the fight of his life.
"We ended up in the ICU because his body started shutting down and failing on us," said Many Standfield, Hunter's mom. "They put out a call and it seems like every doctor in the hospital comes running. That had to be the scariest moment in my life to know that everything in his body is shutting down and all you want to do is jump in that bed and hold your child shake him and say don't you dare leave me. You stay here and fight."
Tune into THE News at 5 p.m. Monday night to hear Hunter's complete story in his own words.
The annual Children's Miracle Network Hospitals iHeart Radiothon will begin Thursday. We will be live from the event on WTOC Friday for 'A Day Of Caring' to benefit the Dwayne and Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital of Savannah.
