'Fight Like a Bronco' celebrating courage of cancer survivors

KUSA - The Super Bowl champions are encouraging everyone to "Fight Like a Bronco."

A good reminder for those of you who forgot to do your self-breast exam over the weekend for Buddy Check Nine.

The Broncos honored cancer survivors during halftime of their game against the Falcons on Sunday as part of their new campaign to raise cancer awareness.

"It's pretty neat, I mean, didn't realize all the people who have cancer until you go to the hospital and actually see all the people going in and out of that building," Roger Cordova said, a cancer survivor. "It's pretty touching when you realize the numbers."

The Broncos say it's important to them to recognize all cancers, even though October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

"Just keep believing, spend time with your family, spend time with your friends, make a lot of memories because they are your support group. Those are the people that are going to help you through it," Kathy Stevens asid, another cancer survivor.

The Broncos are the first to coordinate this type of awareness campaign with the NFL's recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to celebrate the courage of all survivors.
