Meeting With Superstar Michael Phelps

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today was truly indescribable. Justin and his 3 brothers got a chance to meet Michael Phelps and his sister Hilary. The meeting took place at Loyola University in Baltimore Maryland at their aquatic center. Our whole family met Michael and his sister at 12 noon at the aquatic center. Pam at Loyola coordinated the event from the university's side and she was fantastic. Hilary brought in a wonderful lunch for our family, and the NBTS members, Vice Chairman Jeff Kolodin his 2 children and Senior development Director Keith Lampman. We spent 1 hour eating lunch and talking with Michael. Michael was talking about his family, sports, what he eats, his training and many other things as the kids asked many questions. Michael was so nice and gracious and was eager to talk with Justin and learn about Justin's Quest and Justin's diagnosis. Michael was so genuine and compassionate as was Hilary. After lunch, we went to the gym to shoot hoops and take pictures. Michael shot with the boys for about 50 minutes. They played knockout and played one on one with Justin. Justin even did a breakdance routine for Michael. They all had a blast. They made 125 shots. Then it was off to watch Michael's swim practice in the same building. The family had a chance to watch him train in the pool. What an incredible sight to see the world's greatest swimmer in action. Justin had a smile on his face all day and that was priceless. We were so humbled and appreciative of Michael and Hilary's compassion for Justin's plight. Michael is so down to earth and such a wonderful person. Our family is so grateful for what they have done for Justin's Quest. Hopefully today will lead to more good things to come for Justin's Quest and raise awareness and a cure for brain tumors.
