On January 2, ESPN THE MAGAZINE published a tear-rending tale by Eric Adelson about a relationship between a cancer-stricken young boy and Steve Yzerman. If you don’t well up reading it, you aren’t breathing.
The boy, Braxton Davis, had battled a variety of cancer-related maladies. That is, according to his father Brant.
But after the piece was published, Adelson met up with Braxton’s mother, long-divorced from Brant, who revealed a deceit of breathtaking proportion.
