Survivor at Every Stadium: Los Angeles Rams

Los Angeles, CA. USC Norris Cancer Center lung cancer survivor Mary Funaoka, City of Hope lung cancer surivor Tabitha Paccione and their guests represented Team Draft at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday. The group watched the LA Rams take on the San Francisco 49ers with Rams Legend, and Team Draft co-founder, Chris Draft.

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 Los Angeles Rams, Molly Higgins, Jarrod Barnes, the NFL and all of our Team Draft supporters for helping make this event possible.
