Charlotte, NC. Columbia, South Carolina lung cancer survivor-advocate Shane Caldwell and his wife Renay represented Team Draft at Quail Hollow Golf Course on Tuesday. The Caldwells joined Team Draft co-founder, and former Carolina Panther, Chris Draft on the course to root on the world’s best golfers.
In 2012, we, Team Draft, launched our inaugural Survivor Series initiative on CNN during a nationally-televised prime time special focusing on lung cancer and our International Campaign to Change the Face of Lung Cancer.
Our Survivor Series, leverages our connections with professional sports leagues with our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country. As a part of our International Campaign to change the face of lung cancer, the PGA event allow us to celebrate our survivors, raise lung cancer awareness, and give hope to those battling the disease, as well as shine 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 Carolina Panthers, Quail Hollow and all of our Team Draft supporters for helping make this event possible.
