East Rutherford, NJ. Lung Cancer Survivor Abraham Almanza and his family will be representing Team Draft at the NY Giants Training Camp at Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Abraham has a lot to celebrate this year. Diagnosed at age 15, Abraham now celebrates his 16th year since diagnosis. He is also celebrating the birth of a new baby.
This year, the Giants, like many other N.F.L. teams, have not gone away to a relatively remote location in New York, Connecticut, Vermont or Oregon, as they had for nearly 80 years. The Giants instead chose to stay in the Meadowlands, where several years ago, they built a state-of-the-art practice facility with offices, meeting and locker rooms, multiple grass fields and a vast indoor field house. The players are housed in a swanky hotel overlooking the Giants’ compound.
Abraham represents hope for the future as a lung cancer survivor. Since the age of 15, Abraham has battled lung cancer. He now has a new lease on life and has been able to start a new life with a new generation of Almanza’s.
