Linebacker Bradie James and the Houston Texans hosted 20 women currently undergoing breast cancer treatment at the team's Tickled Pink Spa Day on Tuesday, according to a report from the team's Web site, as their support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month gets underway.

James met with the team's guests in a suite inside Reliant Stadium as they were treated to lunch, spa services and a presentation from the American Cancer Society.

After losing his mother to breast cancer in 2001, James remains devoted to helping women currently being treated and the overall cause itself.

Here's what James had to say, from the report:

"I've made a vow to do everything I can to help eradicate, help meet the disease where it is and help these women and families to be more informed as to what to expect. Breast cancer doesn't just affect women, it affects the whole family."

In the month of October, NFL players, coaches and officials wear pink game equipment, such as gloves and shoes, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
