Tanya Snyder Steps Up to Lead Breast Cancer Fight

Tuesday is the players' day off in the NFL, so Redskins Park is mostly quiet today, save for a few players trickling in to get treatment on various ailments. But it might be a good time to put all the angst aside to deal with something far more significant.

Chris Cooley's mother, Nancy, is a breast cancer survivor. Derrick Dockery's mother, Sheila, is a breast cancer survivor. Daniel Snyder's wife, Tanya, is a breast cancer survivor.

With all that in mind, Cooley and Dockery hosted an event at Redskins Park for about two dozen local women who are currently battling breast cancer, the "Second Annual All Star Survivors Luncheon." And Tanya Snyder, who was diagnosed with the disease only last year, was named last week as one of the NFL's national spokespeople for breast cancer awareness. She was among those scheduled to address the women after lunch, and she spoke about her own experiences late this morning.

"Going through this this past year really taught me that I'm not invincible," Snyder said. "Anybody is not immune to this. You have to listen to your body. I'd had a regular mammogram. I did all the regular things, and I still had something that I was focused on, and I knew just something was wrong."

Snyder was diagnosed in February 2008, just two months after she had a mammogram. She said one of her messages as a national spokesperson -- a role that will be on display Sunday at FedEx Field, when the Redskins host Tampa Bay and players are scheduled to wear pink wristbands and other paraphernalia -- is to stress that vigilance is a key to early detection. Snyder went back to the doctor, even though her mammogram had shown nothing, because she felt a lump.

"It's kind of like you feel like, 'Oh, gosh. She's here. She needs attention,'" Snyder said of her reception at the hospital. "It's just not the best, warming feeling."

But a subsequent sonogram revealed the cancer, which had not spread widely. Had she waited, that might not have been the case.

Cooley, who appeared at the event with his wife Christy and dog Taylor, addressed the crowd -- "This is so cool," he said -- and spoke of his mother's situation. Diagnosed last May, Cooley told how, when Nancy Cooley's hair began to fall out after chemotherapy, he shaved his mother's head.

"We tried to make light of it, and we tried to laugh," Cooley said. "But it was really emotional."

So as Nancy Cooley was going through treatment last fall, Cooley helped organize the first luncheon for local women. He said he spent $10,000 of his own money on the event. This year, the event drew sponsors -- namely The Gap clothing store chain -- and involved the American Cancer Society, which brought wigs.

"What my wife and I saw, and watched my mother go through, is her appearance completely changing," Cooley said. "You don't look like yourself at all. To lose your hair, and go through the chemo and to change to like a white appearance, it's hard. She looked very different, and I know that it was hard for her. So we thought this would be cool."

Last year, though, Cooley was the only player who showed. This year, he got Dockery -- the offensive lineman who re-signed in the offseason as a free agent -- to lend his support. The wives of several players and coaches -- including Joy Zorn, wife of Jim, and the wives of Philip Daniels, Rocky McIntosh, Mike Williams and Lorenzo Alexander -- participated as well as October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month, nears.

"To see it take off is amazing," Cooley said. "I couldn't be happier."

Dockery told the group about his mother, who is now 52 and was diagnosed 15 years ago. Dockery's wife, Emma, lost her mother to breast cancer five years ago, and she led the women in a cheer with Christy Cooley, a former Redskins cheerleader.

"I'm here today because I fought and I won," they said. "I'm here today because I realize life has just begun."

Tanya Snyder, 47, also watched her mother battle the disease five years ago. Still, she said it took time for her to cast herself as a "breast cancer survivor." In late July, she participated in a five-kilometer walk in Aspen, Colo., where she and her husband have a home. There, it hit her.

"It was supposed to be a walk," she said, "but it turned out to be a run for me. I felt like I could finish it in two minutes. Just everything -- you have to deal mind, body and soul with things. I kind of took care of the necessary things, and didn't really get into the emotional part of it."

But when she was brought on stage and introduced as a survivor, "It hit me so hard. I thought, 'I need to speak out about this through the NFL.'"

Now, she is doing that. And though she wants to keep some details of her battle private, she said she is healthy and ready to get the word out, both locally and nationally.
"I'm doing great," she said. "I had my surgeries, and I'm healthy as I've ever been."

***Repost***

The whole damn Redskin team is outta shape, and it has s*** to do with fatigue.

They've been gassed for quite sometime now.

Larry, totally disagree with Arrington or anyone else for that matter, with having an opinionated job and just because they do their opinion means something.

I don't have a problem with Arrington personally, but him, like Mitchell, feel that they were wronged by the organization. So every time they something negative about the 'skins (which is more often than not, but at the same time may have some validity to it) just comes off as bitter with a negative biased slant.

If it were someone like Darrell Green or some other Redskin great that feels they weren't wrong by the front office, then I'd say that they're just simply giving objectionable analysis.

Like I said though, even though Arrington and Mitchell come off like they have an axe to grind, I find myself nodding in approval when they're on one their "rants".

Especially Brian Mitchell on Sunday.

If Snyder sees this, Vinny may go out of the door behind Vinny:

Through three games, the Cowboys have the most devastating rushing attack in the NFL.


Eighty-five carries, 581 yards, a per-attempt average of 6.8.

The runner-up in running the football so far is New Orleans. But the Saints have needed 17 more carries to gain 69 fewer yards (102 for 512).

This is off-topic for the post but I sort of had an epiphany about the next few years...

First, much like catching on to the west coast offense 10-15 years late, Dan Snyder is going to discover the 3-4 defense. This will make $100 mil man Albert Haynesworth have to play out of position the rest of his career.

Second, we're going to draft Tim Tebow, despite his inability to throw the ball, because Dan Snyder thinks he'd look good standing next to Tom Cruise.

Third, following his second concussion, Tebow is going to go on to a long, distinguished career... as a congressman from Florida.

It's going to be AWE... wait for it... SOME! Dan-synder-five!

No it isn't, Moose. And just so we're clear on what makes you a s***bag: I know how cancer affects peoples lives, like may people, (other than you obviously) on a personal level.

You're saying that just because Dan Snyder sucks at running the Redskins, it's okay to trash him, WHO'S WIFE HAS CANCER!

That is what makes you a s***bag, s***bag. Get a f-ing clue!

Don't try and humanize yourself with a bs apology AFTER your 'tarded ass just clicked on the submit tab not more than 5 minutes ago.

This is a case where you're not sorry, just sorry that your dumb ass got called out for it, because if no one didn't you wouldn't have said s***.

Wilhite hurt groin running from men
Posted by Tom Curran on September 29, 2009 1:03 PM ET

More details on what exactly occurred Sunday in the strange case of New England Patriots cornerback Jonathan Wilhite have emerged. And just because the situation is more clear doesn't mean it's any less strange.

Wilhite, according to police in North Attleboro, Mass., pulled his groin while running to a nearby convenience store after seeing two men in the parking lot of his residence.

Wilhite was a last-minute scratch for New England's game against Atlanta.

On Monday, speculation was that Wilhite may have been the victim of a home invasion but North Attleboro police Lt. David Dawes told the Boston Herald, "This is not a home invasion."

According to the police report, two men were in his parking lot when he "arrived home" and that one of them approached Wilhite and yelled. Wilhite took off. Unclear at this point is whether the incident occurred in broad daylight Sunday morning or in the wee hours after midnight.

Given the two recent incidents at the homes of Buffalo Bills players, perhaps Wilhite was being extra vigilant. Better safe than sorry. Although his groin may feel differently about that.

Danny boy should pay whatever necessary to get Mike Shanahan. He had Portis in Denver and he knows how to use him. I know it’s not the same Portis but Gibbs made him a power back. Wanting him to wait for his blockers instead of going full speed. I think Shanahan can turn this thing around. He knows how to run the west coast offense.

Shanahan has a career record of 161 – 108. Winning percentage of 60%. He only had 3 losing season in 16 years.

Joe Gibbs has a career record of 171 – 101. Winning percentage of 63%. He only had 3 losing seasons in 16 years

From Wikipedia:

San Francisco 49ers:

In 1992, Shanahan was hired as offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers on George Seifert's staff, capping his rise with a victory in Super Bowl XXIX after the 1994 season. The 49ers offense that year has been hailed as one of the greatest of all time, with the likes of Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Brent Jones, John Taylor, William Floyd and Ricky Watters scoring points in flurries. His years under Seifert placed him in the Bill Walsh coaching tree.

Denver Broncos:

Shanahan's success with the 49ers earned him a head coaching spot once more, this time back in Denver with the Broncos beginning in 1995. Shanahan led Elway and the Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowl championships in the 1997 and 1998 seasons, during which time the Broncos set a then-record for victories in two seasons. He was the last coach to win two consecutive titles until New England's Bill Belichick did it during the 2003 and 2004 NFL seasons. Between 1996-1998, the Broncos set the NFL record for victories by going 46–10 over a three-year span. The 1998 Broncos won their first 13 games on their way to a 14–2 mark. Shanahan, taking his cue from West Coast offense guru Bill Walsh, was well-known for scripting the first 15 offensive plays of the game, and helped the '98 Broncos set an NFL record for first quarter points scored in a season.

Shanahan is known for a run-heavy variation of the West Coast offense he coached in San Francisco. He has often found unheralded running backs from later rounds of the annual NFL Draft and then turned them into league-leading rushers behind small-but-powerful offensive lines. Examples of this phenomenon are Terrell Davis, Mike Anderson, Olandis Gary, Clinton Portis, Reuben Droughns and Tatum Bell, all of whom have had at least one 1,000-yard season in a Denver uniform over the past 10 years.

Shanahan faced criticism for not delivering a playoff victory since Elway's retirement and Davis' career-ending injuries. The playoff drought ended on January 14, 2006 when the Broncos defeated the two-time defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs at Invesco Field at Mile High.

This was reported elsewhere but they also said that Snyder's plane is available for charter and it wasn't Dan who went to Denver. Who knows. I wouldn't be unhappy with Shanahan but I'd rather have Cowher, although I doubt he'd take the job. Frankly, the trend these days is younger coaches...

This is off-topic for the post but I sort of had an epiphany about the next few years...

First, much like catching on to the west coast offense 10-15 years late, Dan Snyder is going to discover the 3-4 defense. This will make $100 mil man Albert Haynesworth have to play out of position the rest of his career.

Second, we're going to draft Tim Tebow, despite his inability to throw the ball, because Dan Snyder thinks he'd look good standing next to Tom Cruise.

Third, following his second concussion, Tebow is going to go on to a long, distinguished career... as a congressman from Florida.

It's going to be AWE... wait for it... SOME! Dan-synder-five!

Keep in mind they ran a zone-blocking scheme in Denver (as they did in Atlanta). It was a great system for Portis as it spaces out the lineman and lets him pick his gap and hit it with one cut, something he's very good at.

From the Times:

A few more nuggets of note from Redskins coach Jim Zorn today on the Sports Fix on ESPN 980 with our very own Thom Loverro and Kevin Sheehan. No questions about job security this week, and the interview had a much more jovial tone than it has the last couple of weeks.

The quick hits:

- Zorn liked what he saw out of Santana Moss, who had by far the best day of his season.

"We saw some things we could take advantage of and we did," Zorn said. "He had a real impact on the game."

- He maintained that he thought the Redskins "Were in the game the whole way" against the Lions, especially after the touchdown to start the second half." He also reiterated that he thought the team was headed in the right direction, it just needs to learn to score and close out games. So that fleshes out a bit more what he was trying to say on Monday, I suppose.

- Zorn weighed in on two calls, one more controversial than the other (at least in my opinion), from the loss to the Lions.

After looking at the video, he said the pass interference call on Chris Horton was the right call. Horton "was playing catchup all the way," Zorn said. "It was a fair call. Unfortunate, but a fair call."

He also talked to an official about that and the face mask penalty that was called, then taken back, by the referees. "They have to judge whether the head was yanked, whether the head turned," Zorn said, referring of course to Santana Moss' head.

Frankly he didn't sound as convinced about that one, but it's probably not worth the fine at this point either.

- On the Fourth-and-1: "I wish it was the right call. It turned out not to be the right call. We should have executed it a lot better."

- Zorn also addressed the new QB in Tampa, Josh Johnson, who will be making his first start on Sunday against the Redskins at FedEx. What jumps out about Johnson is his mobility; he ran a 4.53 40 at the 2008 combine. The second year scrambled once last week in mopup duty for 15 yards. That's a concern for Washington since Stafford had a couple nice runs in the Lions win, including one for first down (on third down).

"We have seen him on video, he's more mobile than Byron [Leftwich] has been," Zorn said. "We have to corral him. We can't allow him to get out of that pocket."

Man, no one can put you down like RedDMV. I always love to watch when some unwitting fool sets him off. Maybe not always. Like it's not so fun when I've been the unwitting fool.
Close second: theCork.

In the heat of battle Red weaves a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan. It’s his true medium.

The defense is allowing third-down conversions 51.2 percent of the time, worst in the league. Mork calling defense, come in defense!!!

At least someone associated with the Redskins is fighting. The rest just roll over like my 85-year-old grandmother's lap dog.

didn't Rock look good, he shoulda been getting more touches his whole career.

always thought 3-5 touches a game coud help the team

The defense has been awful on third down, and most frustrating, on third and long.

And it doesn't help when the defense finally does stop a team on third down, then the head coach decides to take a penalty and allow the opposing offense a second crack at converting a third down.

What? Your constant Obama s*** hurdling?

Mf'er, please...

This place will stand a better chance of me not cursing then your never-ending Obama s***storm.

Election was almost a year ago. He took office eight months ago. You gonna be bitter for four years? I suggest if you don't want him as president, you do something about it.

But no, I know you don't have the balls to even think about doing that, I would say you're not that stupid, but it's obvious that you feel very strongly in your discontent over Obama. If it was really troubling you, you'd say f it and bull a Booth, but like I said, you don't have the balls.

So deal with it.

Karma got the right household, wrong Snyder.

I am 100% behind this cause. My mother is a survivor of breast cancer and I do all I can to support funding for cures, additional research, and medication/alternative medicine possibilities. I would however, with all due respect, LOVE for Tanya to "green mile" her cancer to her husband. I said with all due respect.

This is nice, but does change the fact that Snyder destroyed the Redskins. SELL THE TEAM DANNY

I hope her boobs fall off?

I don't think they just fall off. They just become big tumors that spread throughout the body. I can't imagine that's pleasant.

Now, as far as Christina Applegate (Kelly Bundy), they were cut off because of her cancer.

Wouldn't want to wish cancer on anyone...

I hope she and the others remain cancer free... losing a parent especially ones mum can be devastating especially at a very young age...

Regarding the vitriol heaped on Dan Snyder, I still don't get it... maybe he should stop re-investing on the team... We keep making expensive mistakes... he should be more like the Eagles who spend the least on payroll or player welfare or free agency and get the most...

Isn't it funny that the teams (in the NFC East) that spend the most don't do squat in the season or post season... A good argument to adopt the Eagles/Giants business model...

Cancer survivor here. Often the treatments are worst than the disease. Its sometimes just as hard watching people watch you go through it than it is to go through it. Hard to watch guys younger than you die while you live.
