October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly every football team in the country will be wearing pink. Youth football teams, high school teams, college teams, and the NFL will all be wearing pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Youth football is a major contributor to the breast cancer awareness cause. Most of the youth football organizations will be purchasing pink gloves, jerseys, and wrist bands for their players and coaches to wear on game day.
You probably know someone that is (or was) afflicted with this horrible disease. It is imperative to spread the word to the women in your life to get screened.
