Portland, Oregon. Local lung cancer survivor-advocates joined Team Draft co-founder, Chris Draft, at RockBottom Brewery in Downtown Portland for a night of fellowship and education.
Team Draft’s goals 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.
The Tackling Lung Cancer Recepiton supports Team Draft’s mission to recruit more lung cancer advocates to join our campaign to change the face of lung cancer.
About Team Draft
Team Draft, an initiative of the Chris Draft Family Foundation, is dedicated to raising lung cancer awareness and increasing research funding by shattering the misconception that lung cancer is a “smoker’s disease.” Despite the fact that between 20,000 and 30,000 people who have never smoked are diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States each year, the smoking stigma negatively impacts lung cancer research funding, Team Draft is out to change all that.
