Former NFL LB Chris Draft in Green Bay Monday to honor local lung cancer survivors

Former NFL linebacker Chris Draft is working to raise awareness about lung cancer. He’ll be in Green Bay on November 4 (Packers vs. Bears) to honor local Green Bay lung cancer survivors on the field and at the game as part of his "Survivor at Every Stadium" initiative. The Packers are joining Draft in building awareness, giving hope and spotlighting the important work being done in lung cancer research and treatment.

Lung cancer claims the lives of more than 159,000 people each year – that’s almost two times the number of fans expected to be at Lambeau Field on Monday. Yet, most people don’t realize that it’s the biggest cancer killer. Draft is working to raise awareness by sharing the facts about lung cancer this November, which is Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

In 2010, Chris’ wife Keasha was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer after never smoking a day in her life. On their wedding day, they launched Team Draft, which is dedicated to dispelling the stigma that lung cancer is a "smoker’s disease." One month later, Keasha lost her courageous fight at age 38. The fact is anyone can get lung cancer, including up to 30,000 people each year who have never smoked, and treatment advances are changing the lives of those tackling the disease.
