A Survivor at Every College Stadium: UCLA Bruins

Pasadena, CA. November is lung cancer awareness month! Lung cancer Missy Peterson and her family will represent Team Draft at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night, and watch the UCLA Bruins take on the University of Arizona Wildcats. Missy’s husband Jock is a UCLA graduate, so the Peterson’s will be cheering loud for their favorite college team.

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.

Leveraging our connections with the NCAA, its teams and players and our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country, we are arranging to have lung cancer survivors attend games at NCAA stadiums across the country during the last two months of the 2014 season.

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.

Special thanks to LCFA, Bruin coach Deshaun Foster, the UCLA Football team for making this experience possible.
