Butler County, KY, resident Robert Cunningham was diagnosed with a pediatric cancer when he was only 15. He was taken to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Robert and his family found out he had a very rare mutation. The treatment burned his skin and made him incredibly ill. He passed three years later, but his mother Kim credits the hospital with giving her the extra time with her son.
