Chicago Cubs star Anthony Rizzo is a cancer survivor himself and has committed millions of dollars during his career to cancer research and to families of those affected by the disease. He has his own foundation and his career path has helped get his message in the spotlight.
Rizzo's job with the Cubs also means he is frequently making visits and getting out in the community. Unfortunately Rizzo is unable to make some of these trips due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but that doesn't mean he's forgotten about these individuals who've had such a profound impact on his life.
Rizzo will never downplay the cause, regardless of the circumstances. This is personal for him. Even one tweet can provide some level of positivity to these patients fighting for their lives.
Rizzo's foundation has also made food donations to health care workers as they deal with unprecedented circumstances in the world. Rizzo and his family continue to be a positive force in the city of Chicago and his actions are great to see during these strange times.
