(KCEN) Antonio Laguna is only 7-years-old, but he's a fighter with a soft spot in his heart for helping others.
He wakes up, goes to school, and does his chores... which take twice as long as he goofs around. His age becomes even more impressive once you learn more about him.
"If you have ROHHAD don't ever, ever wait. Tell your mom quickly and let them know so you won't die," Antonio says.
ROHHAD is what he deals with on a daily basis - a deadly and very rare disease. "Antonio is off the chart rare," his mom Candace said. "He is one of about 75 worldwide diagnosed with this since the 1960s."
