Nominate a Breast Cancer survivor today

Posted Sep 10, 2013

The Cleveland Browns and American Cancer Society will honor breast cancer survivors prior to the Oct. 3 game against the Buffalo Bills.

As part of the NFL’s A Crucial Catch Campaign, the Cleveland Browns and American Cancer Society will celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month as part of their nationally-televised game against the Buffalo Bills at FirstEnergy Stadium on Oct. 3.

As part of the celebration, the Browns and American Cancer Society will honor five breast-cancer survivors and their families at the game. Each of the survivors will get two game tickets and receive a pregame field experience.

Nominations can be made here, now through Monday, Sept. 16.

This is the fifth straight year the American Cancer Society and Browns have teamed up for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk that will kick off at FirstEnergy Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 12.

“A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives” is a breast cancer screening campaign to remind women ages 40 and older about the importance of getting a mammogram and clinical breast exam every year to find breast cancer in its early, more treatable stages. As the nation marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, the American Cancer Society is joining the National Football League and its owners and players for this important campaign.
