A good father
Dei'on Wright was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor, a form of
kidney cancer, at five months old. Doctors completed an emergency three-hour
surgery to remove the tumor and his left kidney to catch the cancer before it
killed him. His father Maurice "Moe" Wright has solely raised him
after his mother left early amidst his disease. Moe stopped pedaling drugs, and
sold his car even, living cheap to be able to provide everything for Dei'on,
and give him a future. Dei'on has taken to basketball, putting most of his
effort into the sport. So much so, that he has found a spot on a summer league
with the area's number one team in the city for his age group. So, for Dei'on
basketball is life, and for Moe, life is Dei'on.
