INDIANAPOLIS -- Sunday might be the last time Peyton Manning plays a professional football game. 

Many folks in Indy hope he goes out a winner. Long ago, he won the hearts and minds of Hoosiers. 

And a Fishers woman says she created a shirt to raise money for the hospital that bears his name.

The sweatshirts say Denverapolis on the front. The shirts are available on the Johnny Mac's Sporting Goods online store for $25. They are $30 if you want Manning's number on the back. Part of the proceeds will go to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. 

It's the idea of two-time cancer survivor Melanie Brown Woodard. 

"I would take these two cancers I carry with me and will for the rest of my life. I would take those 100 times over than to have to watch a child suffer. This little bit of money, if it is only $1,200, if that can put a smile on someone's face -- it's made my day," Woodard said.
