Amare Stover is just like any 13-year-old kid; he loves football and hanging out with his cousins, but he was born with a rare condition called neurofibromatosis type one. The condition causes large tumors to grow on his face and they've impacted his vision and ability to breathe. His mom Kandice shared his story on Barcroft's "Born Different" and launched a GoFundMe to cover living expenses and future doctor's visits/surgeries. Since the video was published, people have donated over double the original goal!
