16-year-old Alex Hunter has been through a lot in his young life. Most recently, he had to have his teeth removed after they were ruined from years of radiation treatments for cancer. 

His family's insurance agreed to cover part of the cost to have his teeth removed, but won't pay for new dentures. 

Starting their own gofundme campaign yesterday, the family set out to raise the $11,000 needed for the dentures, and have already exceeded their goal.
