A Twitter campaign, #LeBronMeetEbony, from back in February to get high school basketball star, Ebony Nettles-Bey, currently battling cancer, to meet her idol LeBron James came full circle Saturday night.
What she hoped would be a handshake or a hug, turned into so much more as the Heat visited Milwaukee and Nettles-Bey was invited to participate in all pregame activities alongside James and the team.
LeBron customized his shoes for the night with a message dedicated to Nettles-Bey.
“#CancerWho. Ebony = Strong”
