Football star whose mom died of breast cancer pays for over 500 mammograms

From The Hill authored by Aris Folley:

“Former NFL star DeAngelo Williams has paid for hundreds of mammogram screenings through his nonprofit organization, in honor of his late mother, who died of breast cancer five years ago.

The DeAngelo Williams Foundation, which is led by the former athlete’s wife, Risalyn Williams, announced in a Facebook post on Wednesday that it has “sponsored well over 500 mammograms and have no plans of stopping.”

The former Carolina Panthers running back had launched the effort after the death of his mother in 2014. The program was called “53 Strong for Sandra” in honor of his mother, Sandra Hill, who died at the age of 53, several years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Through the effort, DeAngelo Williams and his organization would pay for 53 mammogram screenings at events hosted in hospitals across the country.”
