Lambeau Field is ready for Monday night's Packers Vs. Cancer game, presented by Bellin Health. The Packers Vs. Cancer effort, which is aimed at raising awareness of all cancers and raising funds to battle the disease, runs throughout the month of October.
Monday's game will recognize those who have battled and continue to battle cancer and will honor survivors on the field during the pregame Ambassador Line. The national anthem will be performed by six-time cancer survivor and U.S. Marine Corps veteran Edward Schrank who has overcome numerous health challenges to maintain his ability to speak and sing.
Fans entering the game will receive a free multifunctional bandana/scarf, made of stretchy, breathable fabric with the Packers Vs. Cancer logo printed on it. The giveaway was created with those undergoing cancer treatment in mind, and can be worn by patients, their loved ones and those who support the fight against cancer.
Shoppers at the Packers Pro Shop can also join the effort by adding $1 or more to their purchase. Each donation goes directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation, which is named for the legendary Packers coach and is dedicated to winning the battle against cancer by funding advancements in cancer research and compassionate care. Those who donate during October have the opportunity to put their name on a special card that will be displayed in the Pro Shop throughout the month.
Additionally, the Packers Pro Shop is selling a new Packers Vs. Cancer New Era knit hat available now at the Packers Pro Shop, with $5 from each hat sale going directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. The winter stocking hat, which will be sold throughout October and into the colder months, features green, gold and white stripes, with the Packers logo on the front and a Packers Vs. Cancer logo on the side. The hat is available in-store and online.
