BALTIMORE - They may have had a tough day on the field Sunday, but the Ravens always have time to pick up the spirits of kids in the community.
Players teamed up with the Casey Cares Foundation Tuesday for a visit to the pediatric patients at the Herman and Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai.
"It's just absolutely amazing that they take the time out of their day to came see these kids, cause these kids are all going through many different hardships in their lives. It's just a bright spot in their day," said parent Kerri Fowler.
Players signed autographs and took pictures. The keynote appearance was that of defensive tackle Arthur Jones, who has battled cancer on the front lines.
"It means the world," Jones said. "Me losing a sister to cancer... You know, I know how tough it was. Just to give back and and put smiles on kids' faces, it means more to me than I think to them.
Casey Cares was started 12 years ago by Casey Barnes and not only provides support for critically ill children but is there for the family throughout the treatment process.
