Dallas Star Brad Richards gives back in amazing ways
November 30, 2010
He may be best known as an NHL All Star and Dallas Stars Center, but among Children’s Medical Center patients and families -- he’s beloved as an amazing ambassador of hope and inspiration.
Brad Richards has a heart for kids with cancer. This is the second season that he has generously purchased a luxury suite for selected home games to host patients of the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and their families. Not only does he provide tickets and parking passes for the game, but he also treats the families to food, video games and the opportunity to meet and interact with Richards after the game.
Richards, who lost a cousin to cancer during childhood, says the patients are the real “stars” in his eyes.
Patients who recently went to a Dallas Stars game sent Brad Richards thank you notes.
