Bringing smiles to those who need them most

Some were shy and scared while others didn’t want to stop talking, but in the end it was all about the smiles for the patients at Children’s Hospital who had the chance to meet Steelers players as a part of their annual family holiday dinner.

Tight ends Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth, linebackers James Farrior and Clark Haggans and running back Carey Davis were on hand for the event, giving the kids signed pictures and other items, posing for pictures and just bringing happiness to those who are in the hospital at a tough time of year.

“Stuff like this changes the way you look at life,” said Spaeth. “It puts things in perspective. To see their smiles really makes your day. It’s something I enjoy doing.

“It’s all about the kids. I love kids. I love doing stuff like this.”
