U.S. Army Veteran and longtime Dallas Cowboys fan Ron Manning talks with Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders at the Dallas VA Medical Center during their visit to the hospital. Manning said he’s been a Cowboy’s fan ever since they became Cowboys. Members of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders made a special visit to the Dallas VA Medical Center to meet and greet patients, thank doctors and show appreciation to staff. During the visit, the cheerleaders presented the Dallas VA Medical Center with a $5,000 grant provided by Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation to be used for cancer screenings. The funds are provided as part of the NFL Foundation’s Crucial Catch campaign, that raises awareness for early detection cancer screenings.
