A Survivor at Every Rink: Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim, CA. Lung cancer survivor-advocates Dee Hunt and Shelley Dann represented Team Draft at the Honda Center tonight. The survivors watched the Anaheim Ducks defeat the visiting Calgary Flames. #HockeyFightsCancer #LCAM15

Given the overwhelming success of our Survivor at Every Stadium initiative, in 2012, we expanded it beyond the gridiron to the ice through our Survivor at Every Rink initiative. As part of Team Draft’s National Campaign to Change the Face of Lung Cancer, this celebration of survivorship raises awareness, gives hope to those battling the disease and shines a light on the important work being done at cancer research and treatment centers across North America.

Through our Survivor at Every Rink initiative, we are working with all NHL teams to have a lung cancer survivor attend one of the team’s home games as a part of their national initiative, Hockey Fights Cancer!

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 Anaheim Ducks, the NHL, UCI Cancer Center, St. Joseph’s Cancer Center, City of Hope Cancer Center and our Team Draft supporters for helping make this experience possible.
