Before he gets back in the ring, Hassam N’Dam, a former world champion boxer, decided to give something back to the hospital that saved his father-in-law’s life.

“This hospital looked after my father-in-law for seven weeks, so I’m giving them what they have us: life,” said N’Dam, who plans to do more volunteering in hospitals after he competes for another championship title.
