INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A hospital stay can really affect your emotional well-being, as well as your physical well-being. That’s especially true for patients battling cancer.

But a visit from some Colts players can do at least a little to lift those spirits.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, members of the Indianapolis Colts visited Indiana University Health’s Simon Cancer Center on Tuesday. They spent time with nearly 50 breast cancer patients to share words of encouragement.

Each player was able to take pictures with the patients and their families, and gave them a Colts care package and limited edition pink poster.
