NBA player Jrue Holidaymade it clear when he decided not to play the beginning of the season as a New Orleans Pelican to take care of his wife, Lauren Holiday. Not only is she pregnant with the couple’s first child, she was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.
According to the Times-Picayune, Lauren, a retired member of the United States women’s national soccer team, was diagnosed with a tumor on the right side of her brain back in June. But because she’s pregnant, doctors won’t operate until she gives birth in October.

“I’m obviously blessed to play this game and be in the position I am in, but my wife is the most important thing in the world to me. She comes before anything else,” the point guard told The Times-Picayune.
On Monday, both Lauren and Jrue took to Twitter to thank people for their support during this trying time:
We are firm believers that people need people. So thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we navigate a difficult time.
