Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $1 million to a hospital in Missouri to fund children’s cancer specialists.

The couple made the donation – along with other members of the Pitt family – to St John’s Hospital in Pitt’s hometown of Springfield over the weekend.

Along with Pitt’s brother, Doug, the couple have made the donation to fund a treatment unit to be named the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center in honor of their mother. The new facility will include a new pediatric unit, a 10-bedroom hospice and larger neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.

Once completed, it will become one of the six affiliates of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
