Breast Cancer has affected many people's lives, including that of Redskins Owner Dan Snyder and his wife Tanya.
As an official Breast Cancer Awareness Spokesperson for the NFL, and a Breast Cancer survivor herself, Tanya Snyder is especially dedicated to supporting the cause during the month of October, recognized nationally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In this candid interview, Mrs. Snyder explains how breast cancer affected her personally and discusses how women can be proactive. She also talks about helping the NFL raise over $1 million for the American Cancer Society!

As noted in a previous WOW post - Breast cancer will kill nearly 40,000 women in America this year, making it the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women, but greater awareness about and access to early detection measures can save lives.
It is with that in mind that Tanya Snyder joined the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, cancer advocates and survivors to emphasize the importance of breast cancer awareness and recognize the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP).
It's our turn.
