Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams will pay for 53 women’s mammograms TUESDAY, October 13, 2015 (Sports Illustrated) — The NFL won’t let DeAngelo Williams show how much he cares about breast cancer, so he’s doing it himself.

Williams lost his mother to breast cancer in 2014 and wanted to honor her by wearing pink accessories all season but the league told him no. He’ll have to settle for wearing the pink accents during October, the NFL’s designated breast cancer awareness month.
