A Youngsville boy who is awaiting a heart transplant was recently featured on the lifestyle network Localish.

Fourteen-year-old Hunter Henry calls Youngsville home, but he and his parents have been living in Houston since January 2019. Hunter was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and is awaiting a heart transplant.

Hunter trains and cooks with the executive chef at the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. He also helped create new recipes for fellow patients on restricted diets.

Hunter was featured in a KATC story in October: Youngsville boy copes with rare condition by cooking.
