Growing Up Ebony Nettles-Bey Showed natural ability as a basketball player and showed great promise early on. Basketball became her love and her dram when she was in 2nd grade. Ebony excelled in the sport so much so that by the time she was a sophomore in high school she was named all conference and had a scholarship offer from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee At the start of one of her games she felt abnormally tired and couldn’t run up and down the court Ebony went to the hospital where she found out that she had a lump on her rib, a lot fluid on her lungs, and that she had sarcoma cancer at 16-years-old.
Ebony was devastated because she thought she was going to die and was feeling defeated. Now Ebony is no longer as scared and doesn’t think like that. She became strong and determined to fight Cancer and battle through the Chemotherapy, surgeries, weight loss, and hair loss. It is Currently in the works for Ebony to meet LeBron James who is one of the players she looks up too. Ebony at less than 100% earned her spot to still be a starter on her Basketball team and is determined to win against cancer as well.
