Thumbs up: NFL invests in Hoosier breasts
Touchdown for Indianapolis women who will benefit from expanded breast cancer services to high-need communities within Marion County thanks to a $50,000 donation from The National Football League Foundation. The challenge remains great, as breast cancer is still a leading cause of cancer death for women, said Tom Rich, director of Comprehensive Cancer Control with the American Cancer Society, Great Lakes Division. He noted the 99 percent five-year survival rate for those who detect breast cancer during its earliest stages and predicted that lives would be saved thanks to the expanded screening opportunities the grant enabled. Keep up the good work in Indy, NFL. It seems we bring out the best in each other.
