Green Bay, WI. November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Wisconsin lung cancer survivor-advocate Erin Sarauer represented Team Draft at Lambeau Field. Erin and her son watched the Green Bay Packers take on the Miami Dolphins with a group of Wounded Warriors.

As a mother battling Stage IV lung cancer, having the opportunity to take my son to his first Packers game was a dream come true! Team Draft made us feel so special and it was fun to see our favorite NFL team while connecting with some amazing people through Chris. Thanks Team Draft for creating such a memorable experience for our family through your Survivor at Every Stadium event! ~ Erin Sarauer

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 Green Bay Packers, Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team, Chris Visser, and all of our Team Draft supporters for helping make this event possible.
