AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - New steps ahead for 3-year-old Hunter Tindal from Aiken County…

Actual new steps.

When Hunter, who battles acute flaccid myelitis, first became one of our awesome #MollysKids back in 2016, he was in a power chair (his family took happy pride that he was the first 20-month-old ever to drive one at Levine Children's Hospital).

His mom wrote and said now he's hopefully going to walk again with the help of more intensive, inpatient rehabilitation.

"Brand new steps!" says mom, Jenna.

Hunter is also now ventilator-free, and his diaphragm that was once paralyzed is functioning at 100 percent. He also is unique in that he had a tracheostomy, but is now tube-free, making him a member of the Naked Neck Club.

"Hunter is the strongest person I've ever met," says Jenna.
