Cancer Survivor Day

The Houston Astros have partnered with LIVESTRONG and the Methodist Hospital Cancer Center to bring you Cancer Survivor Day as the Astros take on the Reds on Sunday July 25, 2010 at 1:05pm. The first Astros game of its kind to celebrate the lives of those affected by cancer while generating much needed funds.

A portion of the tickets purchased through the special link will benefit LIVESTRONG and Methodist Hospital cancer research foundation and is tax-deductible. For this special day, survivors are asked to share their victory story with us at our Astros community website, and they will have a chance to win an on-field recognition before the game.

To purchase group tickets, consisting of 20 or more, please contact Joe Schiavi at 713-259-8314. You can also purchase individual tickets by going online to Make sure to purchase your tickets using this link and password to show your support of cancer research. If you are purchasing for your company, these tickets will count as a tax write off.

For every survivor, there is an ASTROS fan!
