Sixty-two year old Kay Kellogg is a hugeÂ Orlando Magic fan andÂ unfortunately Kellogg has cancer.Â She has Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. The cancer is inoperable and incurable.Â But Kellogg has a wish on her "bucket list." She would love to meet Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard before cancer claims her life.
According to Fox Sports -- Kellogg's daughter, Arian Clute, contacted the Magic several weeks ago about her mother's wish to have a conversation with Howard. When he asked why he was the only item on her bucket list, she told him, "Because some people get a choir that sings them into heaven and some people get a chariot that rolls them into heaven. Not me. I want to be slam-dunked smack, dab into the middle of heaven by Dwight Howard."
That's incredible. In this day and age when people are always in a hurry or don't want to take the time to lend a hand, Dwight Howard -- you are a real hero.
When Howard left heÂ bent down and hugged Kellogg, she only stands 4 feet 11 inches. "You are taller than me,"Â Howard toldÂ Kellogg. After Kellogg was done laughing she told him that was the silliest thing she ever heard.
"No," Howard said, "you are taller than me because your spirit lifts you up."
Dwight Howard may not have won the NBA Championship this season, but he is a winner in a biggerÂ game, the game of Life!
