Actress and Stand Up To Cancer AmbassadorMarcia Crossand former national football playerChris Draftjoined the 750 cancer patients and survivors to call on Congress to help in the fight against cancer. Both Cross and Draft have cared for spouses who battled cancer.

“It’s going to be a rough night,” Cross said. ” When you look around and you see so much loss and so many people suffering, it’s … it’s suffering.”

Draft and his wife Keasha founded Team Draft in 2011 to raise lung cancer awareness and help survivors and caregivers become advocates.

“Football really prepared me for her diagnosis. You really have to deal with it and find the positive in those moments, Draft said.” That’s what we have to do in terms of cancer, really look at it, face it.”

Lights of Hope began in 2011 at the National Leadership Summit and Lobby Day to celebrate ACS CAN’s 10th anniversary. It has been an annual event since then, and the number of bags grows each year.

“There is a light at the end of the tunnel. That’s because people who have lost their loved ones contribute to the fight,” Cross said.
