Big Shooting Day Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was a great day for our family. We had 30 people over our house. Justin and his brothers got up early and started shooting hoops. Then the cousins came over and the shooting continued in between the feast. Overall 750 baskets were made that day.

Busy Weekend

Justin had a soccer tournament this past weekend and his team was the champion. Justin and his brothers still found time to shoot 660 baskets. On a more serious note we are in MRI mode as Justin has his next MRI tomorrow. This is a very uncomfortable feeling for the whole family and of course Justin. Unfortunately, it is very stressful until we get the results back from the doctors. It is a time where Justin bonds very closely with my wife and I. We will head to Childrens Hospital in DC and get our usual snack at the hospital before I go back with him for the hour long MRI. It breaks my heart to see the terrified look on his face in the MRI machine as you can imagine how scared he is until he gets hopefully the stable result that we are all seeking.

Lululemon is a company which sells beautiful designer workout clothes for women. Every year this generous company picks a day for 3 charities to visit their store in Tysons Corner Virginia. Nicole,Audrey's first cousin, works for Luluemon and suggested to management that Justin's Quest be one of the 3 charities. We are very grateful to the management and staff of luluemon for allowing JQ to attend. Audrey set up her material on a table in between the other wonderful charities. She had a picture of Justin in front of the White House in his JQ jersey and she place JQ cards on the table. The gist of how this works is as follows: patrons from the store come to the charity table to hear about each charity and that patron will put a chocolate kiss in the jar of the charity of their choice and each kiss represents $50donated by Lululemon. Needless to say when each person heard Audrey tell her story that" we have a son named Justin who was diagnosed with and inoperable brain tumor and that he wants to make a difference by shooting 63,000 baskets which represents each person diagnosed with a brain tumor each year. Justin wants to help raise awareness and find a cure for brain tumors and all the proceeds benefit the National brain Tumor Society". The patrons were impressed with all the charities but JQ was the favorite given Justin's passion and that he is a young boy with this disease and wants to make a difference. Lululemon donated $1350 to JQ. We want to thank Lululemon so much for their generosity and to Nicole for setting this up.

We Are Picking Up The Pace

Justin is very inspired by all the NBA teams that are donating their baskets to Justin's Quest. The latest team to commit,the Charolette Bobcats, has great significance as Michael Jordan is one of the owners of the team. He is arguably the best player of all time. That has given Justin additional inspiration. Over the past week Justin and his brothers have shot 990 baskets. Justin wants to give a shout out to his friend and classmate Yasmin who shot 75 baskets for JQ over the weekend. Thanks Yasmin for all your means alot to the family and our cause.
