A touching gift in honor of a young leukemia victim who wanted to give back to other kids in Delaware.

A Pittsburgh Penguins jersey autographed by Mario Lemieux was dedicated at the Dupont Hospital for Children.

Father and son Jack and Andrew Clark donated it after Andrew was treated there for leukemia in 2001 when he was just 3 years old.

Now the family foundation has raised $60,000 for research.

They hope the jersey will inspire other young patients.
