Carter Dang is a 3-year-old with Stage 4 neuroblastoma. In the Huntersville community, he is referred to as “Super Carter.”
Today the community gathered to make him an honorary firefighter. Firefighters met at Huntersville Fire Station 2 and traveled in convoy to his house down the road. They presented Carter with a fire helmet with a specially-designed helmet shield, as well as an official Huntersville Fire Department badge.
Carter came outside for the festivities, and many neighbors watched to show their support.
