“Game On Cancer” Teams Lions And Medicine To Raise Funding For Cure
DETROIT (WWJ) - Henry Ford Health System and the Detroit Lions are teaming up for this years “Game On Cancer” campaign.
It’s a three-year effort to raise $15-million that will aid cancer research underway at the Josephine Ford Cancer Institute.
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.
