KWCH 12 Eyewitness News — It's four words no parent wants to hear, your child has cancer. But it's news a couple in Rose Hill have taken twice, as their nine-year-old son battles a rare type of cancer.
But Charlie Futhey is using You-Tube to show his parents his strength to the fight the disease.
Charlie is just like any other kid his age. He's filled with infectious energy and ready to take on the world, but taking on cancer a second time blew his parents away.
“You don't think you're going to go through those emotions again but you do. I think as his parents, we were handling it rougher than him," said Charlie’s mom, Sandy Futhey.
Doctors first diagnosed Charlie in preschool with Desmoplastic Round Cell tumors, a very rare and aggressive cancer.
“At that time only 64 people in the country had it, been diagnosed with it,” said Futhey.
