“It was so exciting to be able to put our advocacy into action as a family and in partnership with Team Draft!”
What a fun day! We got the royal treatment from former Buffalo Bill Chris Draft with Team Draft’s “Survivor at Every Stadium” initiative. Such an AMAZING thing his organization Team Draft is doing to raise awareness and funding for lung cancer!! I felt so honored to be a part of the special day. Go Bills!!!!! #ChangingTheFaceOfLungCancer #TeamDraft
In 2012, we, Team Draft, launched our inaugural Survivor at Every Stadium initiative on CNN during a nationally-televised prime time special focusing on lung cancer and our National Campaign to Change the Face of Lung Cancer.
Leveraging our connections with the NFL, its teams and players and our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country, As part of our National Campaign, this celebration of survivorship raises lung cancer awareness, gives hope to those battling the disease, and shines a light on the important work being done at cancer research and treatment centers around the country.
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.
