WMC: DeAngelo Williams donates 53 mammograms in honor of mother

DeAngelo Williams pays for 53 mammograms to honor his mom, who died of breast cancer.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams announced earlier this month that his nonprofit organization, The DeAngelo Williams Foundation, will cover the cost of 53 mammograms at hospitals located in Charlotte, North Carolina and Pittsburgh.

Williams, a former University of Memphis All American, is a staunch supporter of breast cancer awareness.

In 2014, Williams’ mother, Sandra Hill, died after battling breast cancer. She was just 53 years old. He also lost his four aunts to the disease, but not before leading a push in 2009 to allow NFL players to wear pink cleats throughout October for Breast Cancer Awareness.
