Redskins host All Star Survivors Luncheon to help battle breast cancer
Tuesday, women who are battling breast cancer were the VIPs at Redskins Park.
Redskins Chris Cooley, Derrick Dockery and their wives hosted the 3rd Annual All Star Survivors Luncheon at Redskins Park in Ashburn Tuesday afternoon. Twenty area women currently battling breast cancer spent three hours with Redskins players and Women of Washington members, who treated them to pink-themed hors d'ouevres, makeup sessions, a custom-made pink and burgundy Redskins jersey and more.
Tuesday, the women also received a private tour of Redskins Park. But that's not all -- the women have tickets to Sunday's game where they will be special on-field guests.
ABC 7's Julie Parker caught up with the women who shared some of their stories. See what they and Dan Snyder's wife Tanya, who is a breast cancer survivor herself, had to say in the video above.
The luncheon was held in partnership with the Washington Redskins Community Relations Department and the American Cancer Society. It is one of the events the Redskins will do in October to support the NFL's "Crucial Catch" breast cancer awareness campaign.
