Hello everyone, after 20 straight days on death row, through his grace and your well wishes and prayers, I AM HOME… I can not thank each and every one of you enough for your help.

“There are two things that get you through something like this whether you were vaccinated or not. 1, your will to fight and want to live and 2, your health care, because you are treated way different if you are covered, than not,” he continued.
He also thanked those who helped him along his journey and expressed gratitude for the nurses and doctors who cared for him "in (his) darkest days."
Ceballos was drafted by the Suns in 1990 and played for several years with the team.
He was an NBA All-Star in 1995 as an LA Laker and won the dunk contest in 1992 with the Suns.
