The usually very private Tanya Synder is taking a more public role as the NFL's national spokeswoman for the league's breast cancer awareness campaign.

Most fans wouldn't recognize the Georgia twang of the wife of Washington Redskins owner Dan Synder. She has spent most of the last ten years since her husband bought the team behind the scenes, raising three children and supporting various causes, mainly breast cancer awareness.

Then, last year, she was diagnosed with the very condition she had been working so hard to fight.

The 47-year-old cancer survivor tells The Associated Press that while her "life has been very private, this was the thing that I need to step out for."
