Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Wednesday, Dec. 29 toured the pediatric cancer center at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Mo. with Brad’s parents Bill and Jane Pitt and brother Doug Pitt. The center was named St. John’s Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center last year after the Pitt family: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; Doug and Lisa Pitt and Rob and Julie Neal, donated $1 million to the Pitt’s hometown children’s hospital.

The donation to St. John’s Foundation for Community Health funded the hiring of a pediatric oncologist/hematologist whose presence allows children with cancer and other blood disorders to be treated close to home.

“My mom represents everything good,” said Doug Pitt. The family wanted to honor their mother in way that pays homage to her countless years supporting children’s issues.
