The NFL and the Grand Ole Opry welcome Mandisa for their Breast Cancer Awareness month efforts. Kicking things off, Mandisa will perform the national anthem during this Sunday night's NFL Network game featuring the 49ers and Texans (7:30 PM CT, NBC).

The National Football League and NFL Players Association will support October's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with their fifth annual screening initiative and fundraising campaign. In collaboration with the American Cancer Society, the initiative, called "A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives," reminds women 40 and older about the importance of having an annual mammogram.
