Complex is reporting that Shareef O’Neal has undergone a heart surgery to fix an irregularity he suffers.
According to the media house, the basketballer’s career got derailed at the beginning of his college career with UCLA because of his condition, and now, he’s gone under the knife to get it fixed.
Speaking about Shareef’s surgery, his mum Shaunie said in a statement: “This morning was by far my toughest moment being a mom. If only I could take his place today. Could I at least go with him in that operating room and hold his hand. Separating from him as he was wheeled off to surgery was heartbreaking. THAT’S MY BABY! I don’t care how old, how big, how grown my kids get, I still want to protect them. I had no control over any of this. But there is a God, I trust and believe He is in there with my baby right now and has complete control.”
And fans are sending him good wishes.
