Tristan’s brother has epilepsy

Tristan Thompson’s younger brother has epilepsy. He was diagnosed with the neurological condition in 2007, per The Sun.

Speaking about his brother in 2014, Tristan said his brother suffers from seizures daily.

Tristan said: “Every athlete has something or someone that pushes them to go beyond their limits and, for me, it’s my little brother Amari.”

The NBA player added his “brave,” and “strong” mother was the “rock” of the family and was there for Amari twenty-four-seven.

In 2013, Tristan started the Amari Thompson Fund, which raises funds for people affected by epilepsy.

On January 24, Khloe Kardashian, Tristan’s ex, took to Instagram to share a tribute to her daughter’s late grandmother.

An excerpt of Khloe’s caption on the post reads:

“Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him. Your boys will be ok because they have their guardian angel by their side.”

Khloe included photos of herself with Andrea, photos of Andrea and True, some with Tristan and his mother, and others with Amari.
