CINCINNATI -- She's in the thick of treatment for breast cancer, but Christine Zampese said nothing will keep her from missing Monday Night Football at Paul Brown Stadium.

"It's game day and I never miss a home game, so here we go," she said.

While her husband is having one of the best seasons of his career, Zampese said she thinks the timing of her diagnosis and her husband's success was "perfect."

"Now I can get the message out," she said. "Go get that 3-D mammogram. Take care of yourself. And treasure those moments."
