Jeremy Lin Gains Inspiration from Young Cancer Patient

posted by Randall

Jeremy LinYou wouldn’t blame Jeremy Lin for being down.

He’s finally getting a chance to start in the NBA, but just a few games into the season, the Brooklyn Nets point guard goes down with an injury that will have him out for at least two weeks.

Lin admitted he felt sorry for himself as he limped off the court, but he didn’t stay down for long.

Lin just happened to be wearing pink shoes given to him by a young cancer patient, Ava Lee.

Any self pity he had soon turned to prayers for Ava.

“People are asking about my hamstring, but please pray for my friend, Ava, who is fighting leukemia cutis instead! Tmrw is a big day for her and today was dedicated to her. She chose my pink shoes, my braid design and named my stuffed animal Sharky!! Sorry I couldnt finish the game but we got the win. Ava gives me so much perspective and joy! Love you Ava!!! Praying for you!!”
