Terry and his wife, Carol Bourne-Hunt, also community minded, are both self-employed. Although the family does have health insurance, plans for self-employed persons are at a higher cost and cover less. To date, the uncovered medical bills are skyrocketing to over $25,000 and climbing. Both being civic minded persons and their faith for Terry becoming a survivor, Terry and Carol wish to donate a portion of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society‘s “Relay for Life”, to help further the research efforts of colon cancer. Their daughter, Maddie Hunt, age 12, is following in her parents footsteps. She spent most of her entire summer volunteering for the American Cancer Society and The Father‘s House Food Bank.
