Ethan Hallmark's Story: Christ Over Cancer

 The parents of a 13-year-old Midlothian, Texas, teen who has captured the hearts of his entire community, plan to share their son's battle over the last four years with stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare type of childhood cancer, in a documentary made by the Christian film ministry I am Second.

Over this past weekend, individuals gave more than $20,000 within 72 hours for a crowdfunding campaign to raise support for the short-form documentary about the journey of Ethan Hallmark. The crowdfunding campaign, which began on August 22, has a goal of raising a total of $40,000 by October 6, and is at over $27,000 at the time this article was published.

"Four years ago, Ethan was just another kid baseball player with the dream of being a doctor," I am Second filmmakers said on Tuesday. "Since his diagnosis, he has become an involuntary hero who has demonstrated to his family, friends and community incredible courage and shares a message of hope greater than this terminal disease."
