This is such a super Smarty event, DO NOT miss it! Let’s help make Touch a Truck a must-do family event. Huntersville will once again play host to Touch A Truck in support of Addi’s Cure, a local non-profit created to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer and lung cancer research. In September, 2006 Bo (Smarty Dad) and Christi Johnson started Addi’s Cure, named after their daughter Addi to benefit lung cancer research and education. The organization was established to raise money because of Bo’s personal fight against Lung Cancer. In May, 2006 Bo -a non-smoker- was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and was promptly put in clinical research trials at Duke Medical Hospital in Durham, North Carolina. After participating in these trials and enduring chemotherapy, it became clear that lung cancer research was greatly under-funded. Because of the miseducation of lung cancer, Addi’s Cure was established to inform others about the misconceptions of how lung cancer is contracted.
