University of Memphis Quarterback Jacob Karam plays piano for St. Jude Patient

UofM_QB_St_Jude[1]University of Memphis Quarterback Jacob Karam set a record last season, completing 64.7 percent of his passes, but the Tigers quarterback’s best play may have come on a piano at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
Watch this video of Jacob Karam providing the piano accompaniment for 11-year-old Breanna Bercegeay as Bercegeay belts out the lyrics to Jessie J’s “Price Tag.” But what makes the moment even more touching is the story behind it.
Bercegeay was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia on June 4, and the Facebook Page documenting her treatment and recovery shows a vast change in her outlook over the last two months, from down and out to vibrant and hopeful once again.
Karam showed up at St. Jude after helping the kids at Target House — the long-term living facility at the hospital for patients and their families.
Karam played 10 or 15 songs with Bercegeay before Bercegeay’s mom, Dara Bertucci, made her leave to go eat dinner. Karam hadn’t even told the university that he was going to volunteer, and he never went out of his way to mention to Bercegeay or her family that he was a football player — except for at the end, when he invited them to come to a Memphis game.
“He didn’t tell us any of that,” Bertucci said. “I think that’s what touches me most about the whole night. He wasn’t there for himself. He was there for us. He was there for Bree.”
