Fox 4: Chiefs' Orlando Brown Jr. donates $50,000 to Children's Mercy diabetes research

By PJ Green, Karra Small

The Kansas City Chiefs’ left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. gave a very personal donation to Children's Mercy Wednesday.

Brown matched a $50,000 donation from the Emilie Rosebud Diabetes Research Foundation to fund the cost of a diabetes research project at Children’s Mercy.

Brown participated in the hospital’s TrialNet study, which showed he did not have an increased risk for the disease, although he worries his child could still be at risk.

Brown will also represent Children’s Mercy and show his support for type 1 diabetes research on November 20, when he takes part in the NFL’s “My Cause My Cleats” program.
