DeAngelo Williams, Pittsburgh Steelers running back announced recently that his non-profit organization The DeAngelo Williams Foundation will cover the cost of 53 mammograms at hospitals in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Pittsburg to honor his late mom who lost her life due to breast cancer.
He is a strong supporter of breast cancer awareness. His mom, Sandra Hill, lost her life after battling breast cancer aged 53, and he also lost his four aunts to the disease, but not before he led a push in 2009 to allow NFL players to wear pink cleats throughout October because of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
