Former Philadelphia Eagles owner Norman Braman and his wife have donated $5 million for a new pediatric gastrointestinal disorders center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Norman and Irma Braman, philanthropists and civic leaders in Miami, gave the money for the center, named for their daughter Suzi Braman Lustgarten and her husband, Scott Lustgarten, of Bryn Mawr.

Braman is the founder and head of Braman Enterprises, and owned the Philadelphia Eagles from 1985 to 1994.

The Lustgarten center will provide diagnostic and laboratory resources for motility disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome and reflux disease.

Problems in a child's gastrointestinal tract may result in impaired digestion, nutritional problems, pain and chronic disability.    - Linda Loyd
