The Cleveland Browns let everyone know Monday night that Donique Price is a survivor.

Diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2007, Price, 44, who moved from California to Sandusky three and a half years ago, was devastated.

She turned to her friends for support.

One of those friends was Racquel Pace.

Pace nominated Price for a contest sponsored by the Cleveland Browns and National City Bank.

The requirements were the nominee demonstrate honorable traits and the nominator could explain those traits in 50 words or less.

"I heard the contest on the radio so I decided to nominate her," Pace said. "I went with her through chemo. She exemplified such good character. She was so strong, a lot stronger than I thought I'd be myself if I was faced with the same situation."

Price was one of a handful to be honored at Monday's game against the New York Giants.

She was given a pink and white Cleveland Browns jersey, escorted onto the field at half time, met the players and saw her name on the Jumbotron.

"I was shocked when they called me," Price said. "I didn't even know (Pace) had entered me. It's really cool. This will be my first Browns game."

Pace said she heard about the win from Price.

"They notified her and she told me," Pace said. "It's all for her. To me, it's extraordinary what men and women go through when they have cancer, how strong they are."
