Stephen Huff is 29. He's a teacher at Centennial High in Franklin. You'd never know from looking at him, that he was given no more than five years to live. The diagnosis came just before he married his wife. Stephen has stage four lung cancer, where the average age of diagnosis is 70.
When Stephen isn't in the classroom, he's working on finding ways to fund research and raise awareness of the disease.
Join "Team Huff" in the fight against lung cancer.
On a funding website, YouCaring.com, Stephen writes:
"We hope to make a difference by establishing a Lung Cancer Awareness Specialty License Plate in Tennessee that will help fund life-changing research and clinical trials. We've reached out to our state representatives and the bill is being passed. But, we also need AT LEAST 1000 people in the state of Tennessee interested in purchasing a license plate AND a check for $35,000.00 to get the license plate created and ready for production."
If you can be one of 1,000 Tennessee residents to sign up, you will be helping Stephen reach his goal of $35,000 to help fund a cure for Lung Cancer, which is the least funded in terms of research.
Visit YouCaring.com to donate. Tennessee residents can sign up for the specialty plate on the website. If Huff does not meet this goal, all donations will go directly to lung cancer research foundation Free to Breathe.
