New York, NY. Team Draft hosted lung cancer survivor-advocates and doctors from Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Mt. Sinai, Weil-Cornell and Columbia-Presbyterian at the Tribeca Grill on Friday afternoon. The luncheon, sponsored by Myriad, gave the survivors a chance to mingle with other survivors, and lung cancer experts (Brendon Stiles-WeilCornell, Matthew Kott-Memorial Sloan Kettering, and Raja Flores-Mt. Sinai) from around New York City.

Here is the closing thought. From my Dad’s grave stone. Live by this creed. #LCSM
“What We Do For Ourselves Alone Dies With Us: What We Do For Others And For The World Remains And Is Immortal”
As part of our National Campaign to change the face of lung cancer, this celebration of survivorship raises lung cancer awareness, gives hope to those battling the disease, and shines 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 dinner 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.
We kicked off our 3rd Lung Cancer Survivors Super Bowl Challenge on November 1st, 2016, which will build on the success of our established Survivor Series by using the games at the heart of that initiative to create buzz for the Super Bowl Challenge and, in turn, funds for research and awareness.
