HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - An iconic Huntsville man is shining a light on childhood cancer in American. An estimated 15,780 children in the U.S. children aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer, according to America Childhood Cancer Organization.

Rodney Smith Jr. has been a positive light throughout the community for years, after legally moving to the U.S. from Bermuda. Smith said he will mow the lawn of one family who has a child experiencing childhood cancer in each state.

“After mowing I will interview the family about their child and the form of cancer they have,” said Smith.

He desires to bring awareness to the different types of cancers affecting children.
