Kyle Lowry Surprises Frontline Medical Worker With Mother’s Day Call
You don’t need to be a massive sports fan to appreciate this touching moment! On a day where many of us celebrate our very special moms, Raptor guard Kyle Lowry had a different sort of a heartwarming surprise in store. He decided to use this opportunity to a mother that needs it this year.
Check out this tweet from former Disney CEO Bob Iger, calling attention to this awesome act:
On this Mother's Day, @ESPN created a fitting tribute to mothers on the front lines of this pandemic.
Happy Mother's Day to my wife @Willow_Bay and to mothers everywhere, particularly those who are putting their lives on the line to care for others.https://t.co/e11fOwTg4y

In a piece that aired on ESPN, Tom Rinaldi chronicles the continued fight of frontline healthcare workers in New York City including Dr Leslie Bottrell who was surprised by Lowry. The NBA player surprised Bottrell with a fitting Mother’s Day tribute for serving in New York during such an unprecedented crisis.
You can check out the video in its entirety here:
Lowry, in an incredibly touching moment, told Bottrell, how much he admired the work she has done during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Leslie, listen, this is my honour. What you’re doing every single day, you’re driving to work, you’re missing your family, you’re really on the frontline,” said Lowry. “My pride and joy just being on this call with you is like, my heart is racing right now.”
It is incredibly important during a time where mom’s around the world are on the frontlines to remember the sacrafices they have made this year to save lives.
