On Friday, Frances Pulley, John Wall’s mother died on Thursday after fighting breast cancer. Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball head coach John Calipari was among the first to announce it. The Washington Wizards also made the announcement earlier Friday evening.
Heartbroken for @JohnWall. His beloved mother, Frances Pulley, passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. The job she did raising John into the man he is today — incredible. Everything John is today — humble, a servant leader, a man of God — he got from her.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) December 13, 2019
This loss is going to affect all of our staff because the type of person she was and the influence she had on @JohnWall.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) December 13, 2019
Keep John and his family in your prayers.
The loss of a parent is very difficult to handle, regardless of the circumstances. Wall’s father passed away when he was a teenager and now, his mother is gone as well.
Our condolences go to John Wall and his family during this time.
