Alex Hunter, 16, beat cancer twice— but now he needs dentures after having his teeth removed, reported USA Today.

At age 4, Hunter was diagnosed with stage four rhabdomyosarcoma cancer. At age 13, he was diagnosed with Hurthle Cell carcinoma. While treatments worked to rid his body of disease, his teeth were loose, making eating painful. Hunter decided to have all of his teeth removed.

Now, Hunter has created a GoFundMe page to fundraise for dentures. His original goal was $11,000 and as of Wednesday afternoon, he’s raised over $16,000.
