Tomma Hargraves & Chris Draft

Visiting North Carolina as part of the East Coast leg of Team Draft’s nationwide tour, a stop at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center introduced us to Tomma Hargraves, a stage 3b non-small cell lung cancer survivor who has participated in clinical trials and is lucky enough to be cancer free.

When she received her diagnosis, Tomma and her family sought out all the information and opinions they could. At the time, it seemed that conventional treatments were not going to help, but so they took a chance and elected to participate in an experimental procedure at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Read more about her amazing and inspirational story of hope in endeavors, a publication that chronicles research and creative activity at UNC-Chapel Hill. endeavors features an article called “Every Breath She Takes” that chronicles Tomma’s experience with the aggressive clinical trial that saved gave her hope, and life.
