After eight years of dressing up NFL stadiums and players in pink to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer screenings and education in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, the league this year expanded its Crucial Catch campaign to target multiple cancers.
The money raised will still be directed toward grants providing education, outreach and low-cost screenings for detectable cancers in underserved areas near NFL cities—the kind of screenings that may have helped Prescott’s mom catch the cancer earlier and have a better prognosis. The NFL also funded the ACS’s development of an online Defender tool for fans to receive tips on how to reduce risks for all types of cancer. The end line of each NFL field this month is painted with the new logo featuring bars of the same seven colors Prescott wore on his cleats.
