Former footy star DeAngelo Williams pays tribute to his mum

Former footy star DeAngelo Williams, who lost his mother to breast cancer took to social media to demonstrate he still supports breast cancer awareness vigorously.

The star lost his mother, Sandra Hill, to breast cancer in the year 2014 when she was just 53. Since then Williams has been covering the cost of mammogram screenings for women through his non-profit organization, The DeAngelo Williams Foundation. And the organization has successfully covered the cost of more than 500 mammograms across the US to date.

In the year 2015, the star began sponsoring the free mammogram screenings by launching the “53 Strong for Sandra” program. At each event, the foundation allegedly sponsors mammograms for 53 women. The ultimate goal of the organization is to eventually host a free mammogram screening event in every state. 

In a statement Williams said, “To be able to help all these women is amazing. This can be life-changing for these women. We are enabling them to get this care that no one should ever be denied or not have access to.”
