Wide Receiver Herman Moore says participating in the campaign means a lot to him:

“I’ve been around several people who’ve been treated or diagnosed with cancer. My father — in the latter part of my career — passed away from Prostate cancer,” Moore said. “Unfortunately, I had to see him go through quite a bit for about a year.”

The “Game On Cancer” will be officially launched during Sunday’s Detroit Lions-Cincinnati Bengals game at Ford Field.
