Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson can count on seeing his mother, Gayle, in the stands for his games each week. Monday night she stood in his place and picked up the Mentor Me Community Impact Award as he recovers from that terrible blow on the ball field Sunday. Standing behind Mrs. Jackson is Jeremy Maclan, Max Jean Gilles and other Eagles players (that I hope Janine can identify or someone at PhillyMag that watches sports.) Mrs. Jackson asked that prayers be said for DeSean as he was in a lot of pain, and they were needed. She talked about his dedication to the kids, how important the mentoring program was, the impact it made on the kids, as well as how DeSean enjoyed participating in the program. She also touched on The DeSean Jackson Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer http://www.Foundation10.com. DeSean is the Honorary Chair for this year’s Purple Stride Philadelphia event held on November 6, 2010, to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. I'm sure if he's not there, Mrs. Jackson will be there to walk in his place. It was an honor to hear her speak.
