Los Angeles, CA. Southern California natives and lung cancer survivors Corey Wood and Sandy Jauregui-Baza represented Team Draft at the LA Memorial Coliseum for Thursday Night Football. The survivors mingled with CAL and USC fans before the game at the ESPN-LA tailgate and then cheered the Trojans on to victory over the CAL Bears.
Team Draft’s, A Survivor at Every College Stadium program is committed to creating 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 USC Norris Cancer Center, City of Hope, the Bonnie Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and USC Football for making this experience possible.
