31 Days - Day 26

Great news out of the NFL! (Other than the Broncos beating the Saints. :)  

Mike Florio, a sports writer for NBC recently posted a story that shows just how much the NFL's Crucial Catch campaign is working.

He highlights a woman, who after asking her husband why the football team they were watching was wearing pink, she did her first self-breast examination.  This 34-year old, mother of 3 was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks later!  You can read the full story here.

The NFL literally saved her life! (A little dramatic, I know. Yet true.)  While there has been a lot of negative publicity about the NFL and its awareness campaign, I'm sure that this woman is not the only one watching a football game and was reminded about cancer and how important it is to make that "crucial catch."

The last pink game was on Sunday.  Are you going to miss all of the special pink decor?  I will.
