In recent weeks a lot of what you hear about NFL players come with backlash. Whether they are doing a peaceful protest, or they are beating the shit out of their neighbors, allegedly of course. A good amount of the time when you hear about NFL players it usually isn’t the best news. That is why I thought it was important to cover this DeAngelo Williams story.
Apparently the Pittsburgh Steelers player started to pay for these mammograms last year, but it was just brought to my attention this morning.
In 2015, DeAngelo lost his mother after she battled with breast cancer for years, she was only 53 years old. Adding to that loss, he has lost four aunts to the disease as well. So it obviously is important to him to help find a cure for this disease.
If you remember back in 2014, he was actually fined for wearing pink attire with his uniform because it went against the NFL’s dress code. Really NFL? You are going to do that? Of course people would say, well where would it end? Which I understand. I understand they don’t want players getting too crazy with the additions to their uniform but come on. He was supporting breast cancer along with his mother and aunts. Fucking relax.
So bravo to you DeAngelo Williams, it is always nice to see when athletes, singers, actors, people with more money than the average person does good things with their money.
