A Survivor at Every Rink: Buffalo Sabres

Buffalo, NY. Roswell Park Cancer Institute lung cancer survivor Cindy Kureczka and her husband Steve represented Team Draft at the Buffalo Sabres game. They watched the Sabres defeat the Florida Panthers in overtime at the First Niagara Center.

Through our Survivor at Every Rink initiative, we are working with all 30 NHL teams to have lung cancer survivors and a lung cancer doctor from a local cancer center and their guests attend one of the team’s home games as a part of the NHL’s national initiative Hockey Fights Cancer!

Our 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 lung cancer and the hope that now exists for those battling the disease.

Special thanks to Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the Buffalo Sabres and our Team Draft supporters for making this experience possible.
