A Wonderful Meeting With Senator Casey Of PA

Justin, Myself, Audrey, Jeff Kolodin Vice Chair of NBTS, and his 2 kids, Lauren and Michael had the esteem pleasure and honor to meet Senator Robert Casey, Jr. of PA for about one hour in his private office. Senator Casey listened intently as we discussed Justin's Quest to help raise awareness and find a cure for brain tumors. It was clear that the Senator was moved by Justin's story and would like to shoot hoops with Justin. Senator Casey's office was the office that President Kennedy used when he was a Senator. The history of the building was amazing. Justin posed with pictures with the Senator and Justin gave him an autographed picture of himself and a Justin's Quest wristband and the Senator autographed a basketball for Justin. The Senator was gracious and gave Justin a memento from the funeral of his father the late Governor Robert Casey Sr.. It was a card that described what a wonderful and strong person his father was. Senator Casey pulled Justin aside and described this card and told Justin how strong and courageous his father was in fighting his illness. Senator Casey said that Justin has those same qualities and praised Justin and everyone in the room were very moved by his kind words. Lastly, before we all said our goodbyes, Justin asked the Senator to deliver his handwritten message to President Obama telling him about his quest and inviting the President to shoot with him. Senator Casey agreed to deliver Justin's letter. It was a great day!
