Lisa Goldman

I’m a 41 year old mother and wife. I have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Adenocarcinoma. My kids are 8 and 11. I’ve never smoked or lived or worked near smokers. In fact, I’m something of a health nut and I was seemingly very fit (I taught indoor cycle & other fitness classes up until I got too sick in mid-December 2013). I have degrees from UC Berkeley and UCLA that I don’t use for any practical purposes; mostly I’m a stay-at-home mom who enjoys fitness, photography and other creative pursuits, good books and bad TV.

Blogging for #LCAM15

In honor of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a group of lung cancer bloggers will be interviewing people in the lung cancer community and profiling a patient, caregiver, advocate or health care provider each day in November. I am excited to get to know more people who are impacted by this disease, and I hope you will join us on this ride.

All profiles can be found the day after posting on the #LCSM Chat blog at A list of links to all the profiles on the original bloggers’ pages can be found at on the #LCSM Chat site on the Profiles in Lung Cancer page.

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.

Special thanks to the Stanford Cancer Center,the San Francisco 49ers, and our Team Draft supporters for helping make this experience possible.
