Pearl Washington, a former Syracuse Orange basketball star who also played for the Nets and Heat in the NBA, has suffered a relapse of a brain tumor that he has been dealing with since 1995.

Pearl has been sticking in for a while, but unfortuantely there is a lot he is dealing with. He struggles to walk and needs assistance/supervision. I'm trying to get this next phase more comfortable for him.

Pearl will now require round-the-clock 24-hour care, a wheelchair and other necessities. His family and friends banded together to create "Pray for Pearl." Proceeds from sales of all products on this website will help offset Pearl's medical costs.
