Brandon Mebane shares heartbreak at Chargers

Costa Mesa, CA – Chargers HQ’s

Heartbreaking news today at Chargers HQ’s as Brandon Mebane disclosed the loss of their daughter. No words seem to be appropriate or enough to give to someone who has lost a child.

As a journalist or reporter it is my job to report what’s going on however as a person who loves people and honors their privacy during difficult times it’s a challenging one to navigate, as it was today at the Chargers.

In the presser Coach Lynn was asked about the status of Mebane for Sunday vs. Patriots, he said he’s working today and expecting him to play, unless something happens.

I saw Brandon in the locker room I stopped to shake his hand, believing that it was a good sign to see him, and say that my prayers are still with him and his family. I had no idea that his daughter had passed last Thursday, no one did at this point.

As things proceeded in the locker room, as they do with different media interviewing different players, Brandon’s locker became swamped with five times the amount of media for practice than normal, he was surrounded, too many to try and get close. This is when he disclosed the heartbreaking news that his 7-week old daughter Makenna, died Thursday.

“I’m still thankful, and I thank God every day,” Mebane said. “I still pray. We’re taking it one day at a time.”

I had honored his privacy today, I just welcomed him back and shared my continued prayers being a very sensitive and personal manner with his family, and what they have endured the last 7 weeks with his infant daughter in the hospital, but he did share his heartbreak.

 

I wanted to kick myself in some regards and in another regards I’m grateful I didn’t ask more, however would that have been better for him, to hear, that I wanted to ask how his daughter was doing?

My prayers, thoughts and healing love continue to be with Brandon, his wife Amena, and their two children, Mahailey and Makai during this heartbreaking and devastating time.

Eric D Williams broke the story and has had a long friendship with Brandon since his time in Seattle, so I will share his link here.
