In 2001, Hunter Davis was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma multiforme, a vicious and hard-to-treat form of brain cancer. He was given 18 months to live.
Two years later, and after several surgeries and chemotherapy sessions, Davis, 26, is alive and happily married. His cancer, though, has returned, along with some more bad news.
