Tonight, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Miyah Telemaque-Nelson. Miyah lost her battle with Burkitt’s Lymphoma this morning, she was six years old.
@johnwall met Miyah this past March and started a social campaign to help her meet Nicki Minaj and receive one of her pink wigs. Wall and Miyah kept in touch, facetiming as recently as two weeks ago. Wall will write her name on his shoes in tonight’s game (via officialwashingtonwizards)
Very moving: Washington Wizards guard @johnwall is moved to tears after a 2OT to learn that a young fan has passed away. The young girl who’s name was Miyah lost her battle to cancer at 6 years old. May she sleep easy now #RIPMiyah prayers to her family and friends.
