NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Matches Saints Contribution
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell just made the right call. He recently announced that he too will contribute to the medical expenses of Saints super fan, Jarrius “JJ” Robertson.
Prior to the ESPYS Wednesday night, Jarrius and and his family were informed that Saints owner Tom Benson will contribute $25,000 towards his medical bills.
When Goodell heard of Benson’s contribution, he decided to match it, bringing the total contribution towards Robertson’s medical bills to $50,000!!!
“JJ” recently had a liver transplant due to the fact that he suffers from a rare liver disease. For all that this young man has been through, Jarrius was awarded the Jimmy Valvano award last night at the ESPYS.
We should all be applauding the Saints organization and the NFL for helping “JJ” and his family out. That’s what sports is all about.
