Bobby Wagner creates a fund in his mother’s honor to help stroke patients


Bobby Wagner is back in Los Angeles after signing with the Rams, returning to the town where he grew up. And now that he’s back home, he’s already giving back to the community.

Wagner and the Rams announced Wednesday that the linebacker established the Phenia Mae Fund in honor of his late mother, who died of a stroke while Wagner was in college. This fund will support those who have had a stroke and will also promote stroke education.

It will benefit two Los Angeles medical centers: Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente in San Bernadino. Both hospitals helped treat his mother.

Below is the message shared by Wagner on the creation of the fund.

Wagner joined the Rams this offseason after being released by the Seahawks. He spent the first 10 years of his career as a member of the Seahawks after being a second-round pick in 2012.
