A Centennial High School teacher's effort to bring awareness and funding for lung cancer research.

Computer Science teacher, Stephen Huff, has been teaching students how to code for several years.

Yet, he had no idea that he would become a student himself, learning how to fight the Stage 4 lung cancer. He was diagnosed just about a year ago.

He's currently on a medication that has prevented him from having to take chemo, which has made his everyday life easier to live. However, the drug has a shelf life of 25 months, before it becomes ineffective.

That's why he and his wife have structured the "Huff Project." They are hoping to raise money for lung cancer research. Huff says he was never a smoker, and anyone with lungs can get lung cancer.

He's currently supporting the push for a license plate, that once sold, will result in funding for research.

Darrell Waltrip Automotive honored him as a "Hometown Hero." Supporters are encouraged to check out TheHuffProject.com for more information.
