DeAngelo Williams, one of the league's leading advocates of breast cancer awareness, is helping provide free mammograms this weekend in the city where he used to play.

The current Pittsburgh Steelers running back and ex-Carolina Panther will offer the screenings through his foundation and the Charlotte Knights on Saturday in Charlotte, according to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer.

Williams' mother died from breast cancer at the age of 53 in 2014, and his four aunts all died of breast cancer before the age of 50.

The screenings will be available for low-income, under-insured, or uninsured women over the age of 40.

In honor of his mother, Williams' goal is to provide 53 screenings.
