Sports’ reach often extends past the playing surface, and Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon discovered another example of this Tuesday morning, when he received a tweet from James Carransa.

The photo above shows his young daughter smiling in Garcon’s burgundy jersey–and a little dress attached– after recently experiencing her fourth round of chemotherapy while she fights leukemia.

Garcon retweeted Carransa, who has posted numerous photos of his daughter, Emilia, as she battles through treatment. She wears Garcon’s jersey every game day.
