"What the Costello’s experienced with Hunter is every parent’s nightmare, but Catherine and Kenny are able to understand that part of Hunter’s legacy was connecting so many people; members of the community as well as other families experiencing similar battles.

IN THE NEWS
At just 2-years-old Hunter Costello has experienced more than most will go through in a lifetime.
On June 20, 2014 Hunter was diagnosed with infant acute lymphoblastic leukemia at just eight months old. There was no history of cancer in Hunter’s family, and so his parents initially thought it was just a cold.
“It was totally unexpected. It hit us like a ton of bricks,” said Hunter’s mom, Catherine.
