    The most familiar face among the Steelers was rookie running back James Conner, the former University of Pittsburgh star who knows what it's like to spend time in a hospital.

    Conner is a cancer survivor. He battled Hodgkin's lymphoma during his junior year at Pitt.

    Meeting with the Steelers allows the children a break from the stress of their cancer fight. One of them was all smiles as he danced with rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

    As part of the visit, the Steelers organization donated fidget-spinners with the team's logo to pass out to patients.
