Scottsdale resident participates in Cardinals halftime show

Cigna employees, along with other breast cancer survivors, performed in the halftime show with the Arizona Cardinals cheerleaders Sunday, Oct. 4 at the Cardinals Breast Health Awareness game.

Scottsdale resident and Cigna employee Christine McKissack participated with her daughter Allie Walker, in the halftime show on Oct. 4. Ms. McKissack was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and had a bilateral mastectomy in early 2004. She has been in remission 11 years, according to a press release.

Cigna was the presenting sponsor of the Arizona Cardinals Breast Health Awareness Game for the sixth consecutive year.

“Participating in the halftime show was such a great experience,” said Ms. McKissack. “Nothing is more special than the support of great family and terrific friends, supporting a cause that affects so many!”

During the show Gloria Gaynor sang “I will Survive” live on the field while the cheerleaders and breast cancer survivors unveiled a pink ribbon.

Ms. McKissack is a Cigna Group Insurance National Account Manager. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Arizona Cardinals and Cigna are working together to educate the community about breast health and the importance of preventive screenings.
