This week, Court-side Moms hosts Lisa Green, mother of Isaiah Austin, an NBA first round prospect who days before the 2014 draft was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, a rare disorder affecting his heart and instantly ending his NBA dream. In this very moving and inspiring episode we hear about this remarkable 7’1” AAU star and how he has coped with adversity in his young life. “You can make this your excuse or you can make it your story”. Join us as Lisa shares how these words from mother to son helped inspire Isaiah to make this his story, to pick himself back up, get through his darkest days and come out stronger and more determined than ever to be a success and continue to play the game he loves and be a force on the court. We hope you find this very special episode as powerful as we did – a story of perseverance, determination and a mother’s strength and unwavering love.
