Happy Mother’s Day goes out to all the Big Blue Nation mothers today.
Mother’s have a huge impact on everyone and even more so have impacted the men who have crossed the path of the University of Kentucky. John Wall was raised by a single mother, Bam Adebayo’s mother is a rock for him and the list can go on. Today, I decided to showcase De’Aaron Fox’s mother.
In March of 2000, Lorraine Fox was diagnosed with Breast cancer. A tribute video dropped today on De’Aaron’s YouTube channel. Watch it here.
Each year on draft night (better known as Senior night) for Kentucky fans, players sometimes choose someone or something to honor inside the jacket they are wearing. In the 2017 NBA draft, Fox chose to honor his mother.
“That night it was mostly about her, I chose to dedicate it to her, that’s the least I could do.”
So today tell your mother’s you love them, reach out to them, spend time with them because no one is promised tomorrow.
