Homeless teen has new hope

(CNN) – It's an emotional story we've been following for over a year of a homeless teen named Kenneth Chancey. His dream of going to college and becoming a neurosurgeon was just that – a dream.

Things started to turn around when we hooked him up with an NFL star. Today, our Thelma Gutierrez shows us how his fortunes have changed.

Note: Founded by Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, ACTS is an annual college tour and mentoring program that provides high-achieving high school students of color with the opportunity to visit college campuses across the country.

    This was a great story . Glad to see that there are people out there that care about others. I have trying to get help to save our home and get rehab equipment to recover from my stroke . I have no idea what caused my ruptured aneurysm but many of unanswered questions . due to a life of being exposed to many things. lead paint, DDT, smoke from a mill fire i guess i will never know . even doctors i e-mail like dr oz , sanjay ,and dr manny never get back to me. not even oprah , ellen, or teddy bruschi will respond to me. where is my angel?
