AdamFest, Tree Sale Fight Cancer The 5th Annual AdamFest Pediatric Cancer Fundraiser was Sept. 15 in Ballantyne Corporate Park. The event, sponsored by the nonprofit Adam Faulk Tanksley Foundation, featured a day of fun for families, including music, inflatables and an appearance by Sir Purr. The foundation is named for Adam Tanksley, who was three when diagnosed with Stage IV Wilms' tumors and given a 20 percent survival rate. Adam is now in third grade and is showing clean scans due to his participation in a clinical trial at Levine Children's Hospital.
