Every Sunday (and Monday night) from opening game through the Super Bowl we are a football watching family. As we know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Have you scheduled your exam? I am struck by the message these big burly men are helping to spread by wearing pink. This month I see them not just as players who battle it out on the field, but as boys who love girls. Men who love women. Males who have females in their lives: sisters, and mothers, and daughters, relatives, friends, neighbors...and they want them to be safe from this disease. I find it so moving. Regardless of what team you cheer for, or if you don't even follow the sport, you gotta love these boys supporting the cause.
Bravo to the NFL. And bravo to all of you who have taken up the torch to raise funds and awareness.
To each of you who has faced breast cancer, as a warrior, or as a cheerleader for a loved one, we huddle around you with genuine team spirit.
