Through cheers and teasing boos from the crowd, Marc receives pointers on putting from his favorite athlete - Michael Jordan. And he loves every minute.
With the help of Make-A-Wish® volunteers, Marc, joins his brother Reuben and mother Mercedes, for a private meeting with Jordan at Shadow Creek -the legendary golf course in Vegas and the site for the year’s Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational.
As Jordan chats with the family and signs autographs, the two brothers are overjoyed. They have grown up sharing their appreciation for Jordan’s athleticism, collecting his basketball sneakers, and now they get to share a chance to meet him.
Marc needed this moment most of all though. After years of dealing with a life-threatening blood disease – he needed the dose of hope and strength associated with meeting his hero.
Jordan is a Make-A-Wish Chief Wish Ambassador for continuing to share the power of a wish® as one of the most-requested celebrity wish granters and supporter of numerous outreach efforts such as World Wish Day®.
