On December 12, 2019, John Wall lost his best friend and mother, Frances Pulley due to Breast Cancer. John is a self-proclaimed Momma’s Boy so, despite the distance of Ms. Frances living in North Carolina, he was with her every step of the way during her treatments. Within that time, Wall became close with the staff at the hospitals and decided to give back publicly a small portion of what they’ve done for his family.


John Wall and The John Wall Family Foundation teamed up with Chick-fil-a to provide meals and masks to the first responders and healthcare workers at REX Healthcare in Raleigh, North Carolina (John’s Hometown) and Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Wall also spoke with a few of the nurses at these hospitals to get an inside look at what they have to deal with during this pandemic. He sends lots of Thanks and Love to those on the frontline.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with some special people, nurses, doctors, front line responders and healthcare workers from two hospitals @Rexhealthcare and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. I became very familiar with each of these hospitals during my mom’s battle with breast cancer. I wanted to thank them for all the care they provided to me and my family, and most importantly thank and acknowledge them for all of their work and sacrifice to fight the COVID-19 virus. I am honored that I was able to help them with donations of N95 masks and Chick-Fil-a meals in honor of my best friend and mother Frances Pulley. Thank you will never be enough for all that you have done and continue to do!! #JWFF #cfaFairfax #ChickfilaLakeBooneTrail @CloseUp360 @WashWizards
