Tony Romo visits pediatric patients


He was in town to speak at the College Football Hall of Fame, but the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys extended his stay to cheer up some sick kids.

Tony Romo visited with pediatric patients at Memorial Hospital after the luncheon.

He also signed autographs, met with fans and posed for pictures there.

Key Bank sponsored the luncheon that happened earlier in the day and said the hospital visit was all Romo's idea.

Randy Foster, District President of Key Bank says, "It's really cool. He's the first one really in the luncheon series that has asked to go to the hospital to see some kids."

Tony Romo, Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys says, "I've been blessed to be healthy and in a situation I'm lucky enough to be in and the kids sometimes got, you know, something they have to overcome or, in some cases, a tough draw. And you know, you just let them know that it's part of life but there's still plenty of things you can be happy with."

Romo says he tells the kids to have faith and just tries to make them smile... and there were plenty of smiles.
