In the beginning of this month, James was captured in a photograph with his spouse and three offspring during the ESPY Awards.
LeBron James is stepping up to support his loved ones in the wake of his son’s recent heart attack. On Thursday, the 38-year-old NBA star shared a heartwarming photo of himself, his wife Savannah, and their three children on Instagram. The family was photographed at this year’s ESPY Awards, all dressed up in red, white, and black, with beaming smiles on their faces. In the picture, Zhuri, LeBron’s eight-year-old daughter, proudly holds the trophy that her father received for his outstanding accomplishments. This comes after Bronny, LeBron’s 18-year-old son, suffered a heart attack while practicing basketball earlier this week. Thankfully, Bronny was released from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday after receiving treatment.
A center released a statement expressing gratitude towards the USC athletics’ medical staff for their effective response in treating Bronny James after he suffered from a sudden cardiac arrest. Bronny arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center fully aware with no neurological damage and has been discharged to recover at home. LeBron James provided an update on his son’s health and expressed hope for his continued progress, resilience, and the support of his family and community. He also expressed gratitude towards those keeping his family in their thoughts and prayers.
It’s great to see everyone doing well! Our family is staying strong and feeling the love and support of our community. I’ll share more when the time is right, but for now, I just want to express my gratitude for all the support we’ve received. We are truly grateful for our #JamesGang!
Unfortunately, on Monday morning, Bronny James suffered a heart attack while working out at USC. He was quickly treated by medical staff and transported to the hospital. We’re happy to report that he is no longer in critical condition and has been discharged from the ICU. We kindly ask for privacy and respect for the James family during this time. LeBron and Savannah are very grateful for the hard work and dedication of the USC medical and athletic staff to keep their athletes safe. We will keep everyone informed as new information becomes available.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, the up-and-coming basketball star was rushed to the hospital from the Galen Center at the University of Southern California around 9:26 AM and was given a Code 3 status. Bronny had previously committed to attending the same university in May, which made his father, a former Lakers player, very proud. He expressed his congratulations to his oldest son and the rest of their family for this accomplishment. This achievement is especially significant for him as he did not pursue higher education after completing high school.
As a parent, witnessing my child graduate high school and embark on their college journey is a truly proud moment. It’s the first time this has happened in our family and it fills me with joy. When I asked my child how they were feeling, they simply said they were “super duper proud, super emotional, but just super duper excited and happy for their journey.”
