Like many who live locally, one of Chad Cartwright’s favorite activities is spending time on the water. He’s been fishing for most of his life, including professionally, and loves spending time outdoors. However, Cartwright has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, and doctors told him the prognosis is terminal.

“Before I leave this Earth, I want to make an impact,” he said in one of his Facebook videos made to promote his cause of encouraging youth to get outdoors.
