  • While trying to picture what a 14-year-old boy battling cancer looked like, the only things that came to mind were tired eyes and a look of fear.

    The exact opposite happened when I first set my eyes on eighth-grader James Kuhn, walking with his head held high down the halls of Casey County Middle School. While he extended his hand to catch my name and say, “Nice to meet you ma’am,” I noticed he had the same look on his face as all of his other classmates, as if he did not have a care or worry in the world.
