Steve and Michel Gleason to be honored by actress Jane Seymour, Open Hearts Foundation
 
Former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason and his wife, Michel, will be honored for their charity work by actress Jane Seymour and the Open Hearts Foundation at an April 13 event at the actress's Malibu, Calif., home.


Gleason, who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in 2011, has dedicated the work of his foundation, Team Gleason, to helping raise awareness of the incurable disease and to developing new technology to assist ALS patients.
The Gleasons are being recognized for "helping people with ALS by providing access to life-affirming events and assistive technology until a cure is found," according to the Open Hearts Foundation press release.

The Gleasons are not expected to attend the event, which is scheduled a couple of days before the Gleasons will travel to Peru for a Team Gleason adventure to Machu Piccu. The Team Gleason Foundation is trying to arrange for someone to accept the award on the couple's behalf.


Other honorees are ABC anchor Bob Woodruff and his wife, Lee; activist Marie Tillman, the widow of Arizona Cardinals' football player Pat Tillman; ESPN anchor Hannah Storm; and Maria D'Angelo, the found of The Children's Lifesaving Foundation.

Past honorees include Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith, former Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi, singer Glen Campbell and actress Holly Robinson Peete and husband Rodney Peete, a former NFL quarterback.

The Open Hearts Foundation provides funds to charitable organizations in the areas of health, education, arts and sports, and honors individuals who exemplify the Open Heart Philosophy in their service to others.

I wouldn't have minded to have been "honored" by Jane Seymour.
