Former Falcon Helps 15-Year-Old Lung Cancer Survivor Celebrate Another Birthday With Trip To NFC Championship Game

On January 8, 2012, Abby Wilson celebrated her 15th birthday. While birthdays are special to all of us, they are uniquely important to Abby who was been battling a rare form of pediatric lung cancer since she was 9 years old. This year, Team Draft co-founder and former Falcons linebacker, Chris Draft, is helping Abby celebrate by taking her and her parents to the NFC Championship Game between the Falcons and the San Francisco 49ers at the Georgia Dome this Sunday. The event is part of Team Draft’s Survivor at Every Stadium initiative.

Having been a part of the last Falcons team to reach the NFC Championship Game, Draft knows something about what it takes to get to this level, but he says that is nothing compared to Abby’s strength and determination. “Abby’s courage and grit are truly an inspiration, and I can’t think of anybody I would rather have join me at the game,” says Draft.
