First Step

Welcome to First Step, a video series featuring athletes engaging the communities most affected by today’s social issues, from healthcare access and gender equality, to childhood obesity and mental health. Former NBA all-star Jerry Stackhouse travels around the country and meets with athletes to discuss issues that are important to them. In this episode, Stackhouse speaks with retired Chicago Bears Cornerback Charles Tillman, who, after a firsthand experience with critical illness in his family, takes a first step to help critically and chronically ill children with his foundation, the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation.
