Alex Hunter's insurance company paid to have his dead teeth removed after his cancer treatment, but it won't pay for new teeth, his family says.

The 16-year-old is now turning to online donations to help pay for the dentures.

As of Wednesday morning, more than $15,000 had been donated to Hunter's page. The goal was $11,000.

The teen had decided to remove 19 teeth because "they were of little use to him, as eating was painful due to his teeth being loose," according to the family's GoFundMe page.

Hunter was diagnosed with stage four rhabdomyosarcoma cancer at age 4, beat it and was diagnosed with Hurthle Cell carcinoma at the age of 13, according to the GoFundMe page.
