Los Angeles Chargers, breast cancer survivors aim for stress-free zone – Orange County Register

Perhaps for a couple of hours on an overcast Tuesday morning, two dozen women were able to forget their cancer fight, as they smiled, laughed and connected through art … and football.

Hoag Family Cancer Institute’s Creative Expressions class celebrated Breast Cancer Survivors month with a visit from athletes and members of the Los Angeles Chargers football team, including cornerback Casey Hayward, punter Drew Kaser and former Charger and Hall-of-Famer LaDainian Tomlinson.

The quarterly event was designed to be a “positive, uplifting and a creative opportunity for women to socialize with other people who have been through what they have,” said Caitlin Glenn, lead oncology social worker at the Patty & George Hoag Cancer Center.

Susie Spanos, wife of Chargers owner Dean Spanos and a 12-year survivor herself, started the light-hearted morning out with “Referee Aerobics.” She slipped into a black-and-white referee’s jersey, getting the participants laughing and moving before they started a football-themed painting.
