Norfolk State’s women’s basketball team is in the middle of its season, but one of its members in the fight of her life. Junior forward Amber Brown is in a medically-induced coma after being found unresponsive in her dorm room on New Year’s Day, according to a Go Fund Me account that has been set up for her.
Brown’s older sister, Ebony, also played basketball for Norfolk State.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander posted this plea for prayer for the Atlanta, Ga native.
The young lady on the right was found unresponsive Friday in her room from a diabetic stroke, shortly after had two heart attacks, and was put into a medically induced coma to stop to seizures. As of today the comatose meds have been stopped and now her family awaits for her to have brain activity. They just ask for prayer because prayer has gotten her this far. Repost and keep it going #PrayforAmber
Norfolk State will play Florida A&M at home on Saturday.
We at HBCU Gameday are praying for a complete and speedy recovery for Ms. Brown.
