Glendale, AZ. Former firefighter and lung cancer survivor Tony Moore and his wife will be joined by Cancer Treatment Centers of America thoracic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Goldstein in representing Team Draft at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, AZ. The group will witness the Phoenix Coyotes take on the Los Angeles Kings as a part of Team Draft’s “A Survivor at Every Rink” initiative that is fueled through a relationship with NHL during their annual Hockey Fights Cancer month.
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.
Special thanks to the NHL, Phoenix Coyotes, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, and Kim Dodds for joining forces with Team Draft to make this experience possible.
