What's Happening At Redskins-Eagles

• Sunday's game is presented by Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Sunday's game is devoted to Tackling Breast Cancer. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders will use pink pom-poms while the Eagles coaching staff and players use pink towels and wear pink hats throughout the game. Players will don pink athletic gear including cleats, gloves, towels and wristbands. The Eagles were the 1st team to sell pink merchandise to fans with a portion of the proceeds benefitting cancer research. On Sunday, volunteers from Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals will be selling Eagles Tackling Breast Cancer hats, ties and scarves throughout the concourse and stadium. Proceeds from these items directly benefit the Jefferson Breast Care Center.

• Fan Featured on Sunday's Season Ticket: Sunday's featured fan is Carol Max from Media, PA. As a breast cancer survivor, Carol never lost faith in herself or her Eagles. Carol started attending games on a shared season ticket in 1984. She got married and gained a second season ticket. Carol was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993, just months after getting married. Despite the diagnosis and chemotherapy, Carol attended every game right through treatments. In 2002, a fire nearly destroyed her family's lives, but not a single Eagles game was missed. Now, as a 17-year survivor, she proudly displays her pink Eagles Tackling Breast Cancer hat. A fighter and a mother, Carol counts her blessings every day and always includes her Eagles.
