EAST PRAIRIE, MO (KFVS)- It is a story of hope and inspiration as the town of East Prairie rallies around three, four-year-old cancer survivors.
A Doyle elementary teacher who knows those tough pre-school children decided to try out a trike-a-thon to raise money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
In two weeks classes more than tripled their goal, then doubled it twice.
All so kids like Hudson Cade can live to tell how they won the fight against a serious disease.
"It was in my chest, my belly, and my in my kidney," said Hudson.
Just a little boy, and yet Hudson Cade can proudly tell you how he feels about beating cancer.
"Real happy," he said.
To say the least, he's full of life.
All that energy is a miracle for his mother, Victoria.
"Look at my sons face he's alive, he's here," she said.
Hudson is among three children with similar stories of defeating the disease.
