"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 (NFL) and its owners and players for this important campaign.
To further engage and inspire fans to give back to their community, the Cleveland Browns launched the signature First and Ten program to encourage fans and community advocates to give ten hours to help their community.
