CLEVELAND β€” Several players with the Cleveland Browns brightened the day for cancer patients at University Hospitals on Tuesday.

Joel Bitonio, Michael Dunn, Myles Garrett, Jacob Phillips, Wyatt Teller and Cade York visited patients at both Seidman Cancer Center & Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

The visits are part of the Browns Give Back initiative and its continued support of the NFL Crucial Catch campaign, a news release said.

"Browns players will interact with and present gifts to individuals to show their support and brighten spirits, as well as express appreciation to UH's medical staff for their daily contributions," the team said.

Raising awareness for cancer has been an important initiative for the NFL. As part of its continued collaboration with the American Cancer Society, the Browns will display their full support of the "Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer" campaign during the team's home game on Oct. 9 against the Los Angeles Chargers, presented by University Hospitals, the release said.
