It’s hard to put into words. I had a great time! We loved experiencing the game together for the first time from unbelievable seats! (Somthing we wouldn’t normally be able to to afford.) I enjoyed getting to know about Chris Draft and the Foundation. The passion he has for “changing the face of lung cancer” is contagious! I love the fact that Team Draft uses sports as a way to unite the fight against cancer. I’m honored to be a part of such a unique cancer fighting team! ~ Sharon
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, so in 2012, we launched our inaugural Team Draft Survivor Series 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. Our Survivor at Every Stadium, leverages our connections with the NFL, its teams and players with our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country. As a part of our International Campaign, the games allow us to celebrate our survivors, raise 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 Dallas Cowboys and all of our Team Draft supporters for helping make this event possible.
