The Wizards may have won their game on Monday Night in double overtime versus the Boston Celtics 133-132, but the win game with a much more important lost to one John Wall. Wall’s 6 year old friend Miyah passed away with cancer and Wall wasn’t able to hold back his emotion after the game.
Miyah was diagnosed with a form of cancer, classified as Burkitt’s lymphoma back in October of 2013. Wall and her met in March and their relationship grew from there. Wall decided to step into her life when he learned Miyah’s ultaimte wish of meeting Nicki Minaj. Wall helped her out and her wish came true.
After the Wizards game Monday, Wall tweeted out the falling message:
“If you were blessed to meet and get to know Miyah you know how special of a little girl she was. I’m saddened by the news but I know that she’s in a better place. Keep her family in your prayers. I’ll definitely miss my buddy. Rest In Peace Miyah.”
