DeAngelo Williams' mother Sandra Hill has passed away after a long battle with breast cancer...

Cat Scratch Reader faithful, please join me in giving DeAngelo Williams and his family our deepest condolences.  After a years-long battle with breast cancer, DeAngelo's mother Sandra Hill passed away around 11:30 this morning after the cancer had recently spread.

DeAngelo's mother had 4 sisters who also fought the disease.  Sandra was the only one to live past 50.  It is a sad day for one of our all-time greats and his family, and our hearts go out to them.

DeAngelo was one of the main driving forces behind the NFL recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month by allowing players to wear pink on their uniforms during the month of October.

If you would like to become a sponsor for Deangelo's foundation, which funds research into breast cancer, you can visit the site here: The DeAngelo Williams Foundation
