Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens has a lot on his agenda as he prepares for his first season as a head coach at any level.

Despite that, Kitchens found time on Saturday to make an appearance at a fundraiser for Matthew Dixon, a 38-year-old Browns fan who is battling chondrosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

The event was the brainchild of Paul Brown, a Browns fan from the United Kingdom who traveled to Cleveland to raise money for Dixon’s medical bills. The day started at FirstEnergy Stadium and included a bar crawl that ultimately ended at Progressive Field, according to

Kitchens’ level of interest highlighted what makes the Browns community so special, Dixon told

“It’s just amazing when somebody takes a personal interest in your well-being. It’s just such a great fan base and community, it’s just passion.”
