Brad Pitt, family donate $1 million to hospital



Tbd-bradpitt061609 From the AP:

As much as some of you haters say how sick you are of the guy, Brad Pitt and his siblings have given $1 million to help a Missouri hospital open a new pediatric cancer center that will be named for their mother.

Brad and his siblings' families, Doug and Lisa Pitt and Rob and Julie Neal, gave the money to St. John's Hospital in Springfield on Saturday in honor of their mother's passion for children's issues.

The hospital is opening the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center this summer in the town where Pitt and his siblings grew up. The donation will pay to hire the only pediatric oncologist and hematologist in the southwest Missouri region.

We've got to wonder, how much did Brad kick in compared to his family? Like, did he give $999,900, and the others dug out a few twenties? That only seems fair.
