R&B singer Kelly Rowland sang the National Anthem before a game at Sunday’s New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears game at the New Meadowlands Stadium on October 3, 2010 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Rowland almost pulled out after suffering from a cold but stuck to the gig and did very well I must say. She was joined on the field by 125 Breast Cancer survivors dressed in pink T-shirts who formed a giant ribbon during her performance. Rowland, along with both teams, were showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Giants invited the women as part of “A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives Initiative” that encourages women over 40 to obtain an annual mammogram.
Breast cancer is the second-most common form of cancer in women behind non-melanoma skin cancer.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 191-thousand woman were diagnosed with it in 2006, the last year for which numbers are available.
