So excited to join Team Draft at the Blackhawks game tonight. We throw lung cancer into the ‘boards’ every day with the ‘goal’ to beat it and to change the face of lung cancer. It takes the right team and I am honored to be a part of Team Draft!


Lung cancer may have started the fight but I will finish it. And, tonight I am blessed to be a part of Team Draft and watch the Blackhawks beat the Predators while we will beat the ‘puck’ out of lung cancer – WE ARE TEAM DRAFT!


I am grateful and excited to be a part of Team Draft and join fellow lung cancer survivors at the Blackhawks game. Team Draft’s campaign, ‘A Survivor at Every Rink,’ gives survivors a unique and fun experience while also shining a desperately needed light on lung cancer. It’s not often we are ‘excited’ or have ‘fun’ when it comes to lung cancer. Thank you Team Draft!


I am a brand new member of team Draft and a brand new survivor this year. I am so grateful to have such a network of caring support and understanding. Thank you so much for building the awareness around lung Cancer and for the wonderful fun night seeing the Blackhawks together. GO Hawks !!

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.

On December 1, 2016, Team Draft co-founder and former NFL linebacker Chris Draft launched Team Draft’s 2016 Lung Cancer Survivors Super Bowl Challenge on SiriusXM NFL radio with hosts Bob Papa and Solomon Wilcots. The launch served as a call to action for lung cancer survivors across the country to join the challenge.

The Challenge participants will be a part of a friendly competition, with the top fundraisers awarded trips to Super Bowl 50, the NFL Pro-Bowl and the Taste of the NFL. The winners, announced on January 4, 2016, will have an opportunity to share their powerful stories with key influencers from across the country.

Join the Challenge:

Special thanks to the Chicago Blackhawks, the NHL, Rush University Cancer Center, and our Team Draft supporters for helping make this experience possible.
