OWINGS MILLS, Md. — It's victory Monday for the Baltimore Ravens but the work doesn't stop.

While the players had the day off, they were out in the community making a difference.

Cornerback Brandon Carr gave eight women with breast cancer a day of pampering. They stopped by the Under Armour Performance Center for a full makeover and custom wig.

Carr's mother Kathy died in 2014 following a long battle with breast cancer. Since then, he's made it a mission to support other women also fighting the disease.

His goal is to help the women restore some of their hope, confidence and self-esteem.

"I understand these women are fighting, they're giving it their all they’re getting drained each and every week with the treatments the chemo. Just a day of pampering to remind them that they are beautiful to let them know they have people in their corner supporting them as well fighting with them praying for them." said Carr.

Carr recently teamed up with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and bundles luxury hair to provide full makeovers and custom wig installations for women undergoing chemotherapy.

He will be giving out makeovers and custom wigs to women in Dallas and his hometown of Flint in the future.
