Kudos to Mike Ditka!

The NFL Players Union and the NFL owners should help former NFL athletes who are financially and physically devastated by injuries they sustained while playing in the NFL. Most of them have used up their life savings because of huge medical bills. Some of these athletes include Conrad Dobler, Brent Boyd, Harry Carson, Donnie Green, Mike Mosley, and Brian DeMarco, just to name a few. In 2002, former player Mike Webster died, destitute and demented.
Mike Ditka’s Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund is a nonprofit organization that is helping these players. Its website is http://www.gridirongreats.org If you’d like to make a donation, call 800-708-1078 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
