I went to the game at the Fleetcenter against the Pacers. With the help of a lot of special people from the DANA FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE and the Jimmy Fund Clinic I was able to meet Mark Jackson. This has been a dream of mine for many years and it finally came true. I was able to get into the game early to watch the shootaround, and I even got to talk with Mark before the game. He signed my picture and my shirt, and even posed for a few snapshots. As if that wasn't enough, during the game he would motion over to me in the stands as if I were one of his friends sitting there. Mark even sent out some passes to me and my family so we could see him after the game. When the game ended, he came out and gave me a pair of his sneakers which he signed. He told me to stay strong and that I was in his prayers. This is the classiest guy to ever step on a basketball court.
