“Miles and I have been there for each other since 2006. He takes me to my appointments and is my constant companion for all of our adventures. We are excited for the opportunity to cheer on Stanford’s football team to victory over Oregon. I am thankful for the care and support that the cancer center has shown me.”




I’m a lung cancer patient at Stanford. I was diagnosed in early 2011 and I’m still here surviving thankfully.

I was informed about coming to Saturday’s game but more importantly, the efforts to raise funding and awareness pertaining to lung cancer and its research. I would be more than happy to do anything I can in support of these endeavors.


In 2012, we, Team Draft, launched our inaugural Survivor at Every Stadium initiative on CNN during a nationally-televised prime time special focusing on lung cancer and our National Campaign to Change the Face of Lung Cancer.

Leveraging our connections with the NFL and the NCAA, its teams and players and our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country, As part of our National Campaign, this celebration of survivorship raises lung cancer awareness, gives hope to those battling the disease, and shines a light on the important work being done at cancer research and treatment centers around the country.

Team Draft’s goals are to create a unique experience for participating survivors and to raise awareness on a local, national, and international level by using each game and each survivor’s story to weave a broader narrative about the state of cancer and the hope that now exists for those battling the disease.

Special thanks to the Stanford University, Stanford Cancer Institute, Dr. Joel Neal and our Team Draft supporters for helping make this experience possible.
