Last February, there was a campaign out on Twitter directed at LeBron James. The goal was to get the NBA superstar to meet a high school basketball player whose battling stage four cancer. #LeBronMeetEbony, became a reality on Saturday night when Ebony got more than she could’ve imagined. The Miami Heat visited the BMO Harris Bradley Center to face the Milwaukee Bucks, Nettles-Bey got to participate in Miami’s entire pregame routine.
Lebron posted the following caption with a photo of he and Ebony on Instagram.
Tonight I had the privilege of meeting and making someone dream come dream. Basketball has put me in position that I will never take for granted. Being a hero to this girl Ebony is the reason that I keep going every single day! She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer out of nowhere towards the end of last year and force her to be home schooled and away from her friends. But didn’t stop her from doing what she loves more than anything and that’s playing basketball at Verona High outside of Milwaukee. Ebony your strength, courage and energy is out of this world and u will win and defeat this. I just know it! Love you forever and I got your back and front! #EbonyMetLeBron #CancerWho #EbonyEqualsStrong#StriveForGreatness
