Most of you have seen the touching commercial featuring former Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen and his wife Shannon Allen discussing their son Walker’s type 1 diabetes.
According to Black Celeb Kids, Ray Allen delayed his decision to sign with the NBA champs Miami Heat until he was confident with the medical care his son would receive in Miami.
His son’s care was a huge part of the decision on whether to sign with Miami. Even before the deal got done, plans were already being put in place to make sure Walker Allen would have all the support he would need in South Florida.
“We’re saying goodbye to a lot of people that we grew up to know and love in our community, in the organization,” Allen said. “Everything changes. You are sad about that. But it doesn’t keep those people from still being close to our heart or still being friends.” Source
