Pittsburgh Steelers/Meet the Steelers


Hello my name is Tracy my eight year old son went to play football, he went to every pratice and was getting ready for his first game. My son has sickle cell and the Dr took him out because he has an enlarge speen. My son was very upset because he love football. My question is can he meet the player that has sickle cell. I dont want my son to give up on playing something he loves. Thank You Tracy


First of all, let me say I'm sorry to hear of your son's illness. Ryan Clark is the player on the Steelers that also suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia. I am going to take it upon myself to write to the Pittsburgh Steelers front office and also to Ryan Clark and let them know of your son's situation. It is my hope they will respond to you but I will need your contact information for them to reach you. Please email me with a phone number or mailing address for which you can be reached. Once you have provided that to me, I will contact the Steelers.

Thank you.
