NBA All-Star and Wizards point guard John Wall, is using his magic off the court to help ‘Make Dreams Come True’. D.C.’s backcourt leader and ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is the go-to assist man when it comes to bringing cheer to the faces of some of his smallest fans. A few weeks ago, he arranged a meeting between 5-year old Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson – who is battling lymphoma – and her favorite recording artist is Nicki Minaj, by asking his Instagram followers to get Nicki’s attention using the hashtags #HelpMiyahMeetNicki and #PinkWig4Miyah
Oh, but Wall’s wizardry didn’t stop there. He recently helped grant 10-year old Amaris Jackson’s wish to break the NBA’s gender barrier, by signing a contract with the Wizards – becoming Wall’s teammate for the day. Diagnosed with kidney cancer, Amaris has had several rounds of chemotherapy and surgeries to remove tumors from her body. Despite her health battle, she’s a ferocious leader on the court as the point guard for her middle school’s basketball team. Her resilience left a lasting impression on Wall, as he credited her “positive attitude and energy” as the inspiration behind the Wizards’ win against the Milwaukee Bucks this past Saturday.
Keeping on dishing, John!
