Dallas, TX. Baylor Health lung cancer survivors Anthony Limpkin and Larry Case will commemorate the first day of Lung Cancer Awareness Month by representing Team Draft at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. The survivors will watch their hometown Dallas Stars take on the Colorado Avalanche as a continuance of Team Draft’s “A Survivor at Every Rink” program that is fueled by a relationship with the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.
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 lung cancer and the hope that now exists for those battling the disease.
Thank you NHL, Dallas Stars Foundation, and Baylor Health’s Charles Sammons Cancer Center for joining forces with Team Draft to make this experience possible.
