This is why players like Hines Ward will always be missed

Cancer Patient to See First Steelers Game thanks to Hines Ward

Hi, Ed
After reading the touching story of faith in the face of adversity by Mark Fassio in Saturday's PG (, I emailed Mark to offer support and prayers on his battle with cancer. We emailed back and forth a bit, and he mentioned that another reader actually offered to buy him tickets to a game, but due to his condition and treatment, he wasn't sure he could be out in the elements.

Then I got an idea. I knew Hines Ward had a box, so I sent a tweet to Hines sharing Mark's story. Worth a shot, right? Hines responded within minutes and gave me his marketing agent's phone number. Long story short, Mark and his family will get to see their 1st Steeler game at Heinz Field on December 9, as guests of Hines Ward in his suite!
