The Great Shoot Around With The Montgomery County Police

May 24th was a great day for Justin's Quest. Justin had the honor and pleasure to meet with about 25 Montgomery County Police officers to shoot hoops at BCC High School gym in Bethesda MD. Audrey and I were so humbled that these brave men and women who lay down their lives every day to protect the citizens took the time out of their busy schedule to honor Justin and shoot hoops. There were TV cameras present and we were interviewed. Again, I am still in awe at the sight of my son making a difference to raise awareness and find a cure for brain tumors. I still have pinch myself that it is my son who has the brain tumor. The officers were so great with Justin and made him feel special. Asst. Chief of Police Jerman and Commander Hamill presented Justin with a beautiful certificate of appreciation. Justin was so happy to receive this at he was so excited about the recognition of his hard work. As I do these interviews, it does not get any easier to talk about my son's diagnosis as I still get choked up at these events and the out pouring of support and kind words of encouragement. It is an awesome sight for any parent to be a part of and I use the word awesome because there are so many emotions going through your mind. But most of all We are just so proud of Justin and what he is doing. Justin and the officers did a shoot around and played knockout. Overall 165 shots were made today. We thanked the officers so much for what they have done and some of them told us that Justin touched them dearly and emotionally. We want to thank all those who attended and helped organize the event. We want to give a special thanks to Jay Rosenberg for helping organize this event, he has been so great in helping to spearhead Justin's Quest. I want to also personally thank Officer Cobian who was instrumental in organizing the event. He was fantastic with Justin and even gave him a "tour" of his police cruiser. Another successful event and many more to come.
