Bradie James, a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys has decided to honor his mother, Etta James, who died of breast cancer in 2001 with Foundation 56, a breast cancer outreach program.
Cecelia Stephens said she’d be “dead” without Foundation 56. In 2008, Stephens walked onto a Foundation 56 bus – with Stage 3 breast cancer. After treatment, now she’s cancer-free. Stephens always wanted to meet James to thank him. When she finally got the opportunity, she gave him a big hug.
In every woman James helps, one in particular comes to mind. “It’s all about her legacy and a son’s love for his mom.”
