About 12 months after diagnosis, Keasha passed away, but Chris continues their work through the Chris Draft  Family Foundation which continues to support lung cancer prevention & treatment. Chris has traveled the world working with & speaking at hundreds of corporate & nonprofit events &  continues to have a presence on CNN & ESPN as an NFL ambassador.
