Breast cancer affects one in eight women in the United States who live to be 80 years old. The mortality rate is nearly nineteen percent. If you are a woman over the age of 40, I urge you to have your mammograms. Thirteen years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and if it was not for mammograms, I might not be alive today.
The NFL's latest challenge with transparency is nothing new, particularly when it comes to women and women's causes. I have fought for full disclosure from the NFL and its charitable activities for several years, most specifically from its Crucial Catch program they claim supports breast cancer organizations.
