Pittsburgh Steelers football players donate to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC

Lance and Antonio Brown

On December 20, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wrote out the largest check he’d ever given to charity—donating $100,000 to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Then, on Friday, December 23, Pennsylvania Champion Lance, along with fellow pediatric patients of the hospital were able to meet Brown and several other Pittsburgh Steelers players during the holiday presentation.

Lance and DeAngelo Williams

Lance was diagnosed with an inoperable high-grade cancerous tumor in his brain stem when he was just four years old. He’s since endured chemotherapy, radiation, two surgeries and peptide vaccine injections. He and his family have benefited from donations made to the hospital by utilizing the pet therapy and child life programs during their countless hours they’ve spent in the hospital over the years.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams and his wife, Risalyn, are also raising money for the hospital.
