Max Turns Up the HEAT

Max's wish to meet  Dwyane Wade

“ When the big moment arrived to meet his basketball idol, he felt like he was dreaming. ”

Twelve-year-old Max, who has an immune deficiency, is a huge sports fan who knows scores and stats just as well as the commentators he watches on ESPN. His most prized possession is his basketball card collection. His greatest wish was to meet his favorite sports star, Miami HEAT guard Dwyane Wade.

His wish experience included a limousine ride to American Airlines Arena and a tour of Championship Alley, the HEAT’s exclusive tribute area. Max also watched pre-game warm-ups from courtside seats, met Miami HEAT players and cheered the home team on to victory. When the big moment arrived to meet his basketball idol, he felt like he was dreaming. Dwyane Wade and his biggest fan chatted, compared hand sizes and posed for photos. Max brought home with him plenty of souvenirs including a basketball signed by the 2008-09 Miami HEAT and memories that will energize him for years to come!

I would like to meet Dwayne Wade. He is my best player. He motivates me through his book. My friends said that I look like him a little bit.
