Willie has an angel behind him now. As previously mentioned on the site, Blake Hundley, Willie’s special friend who battled brain cancer for three years, passed away Friday at the age of nine. Blake was a huge UK fan who took a special liking to Willie and became friends with the UK big man. He even gave Willie a #TeamBlake bracelet that WCS wore in his sock during games this season. Willie posted an instagram post in memory of Blake yesterday, and now, the Prayers for Blake facebook page is asking everyone in the Big Blue Nation to wear Blake’s favorite color- Kentucky Blue- in honor of him tomorrow. Surely, the BBN can get behind this, right?
I can’t even begin to imagine the agony Blake’s friends and family are feeling right now, but our prayers are continuously with them.
What do you say BBN? #BlueforBlake?
