Image via WikipediaKay Kellogg has Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma an aggressive cancer that's slowly killing her. An ex-ballet dancer, few things perk her up these days like watching Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard play basketball.
"Whenever I watch him play, he just makes me feel good inside. He is just such a precious, wonderful kid", she says.
Few weeks ago, her daughter contacted Orlando Magic and told them about her mother's last wish: To meet Dwight Howard.
They obliged and the 4ft-11 Kay finally met her hero, 7ft tall Dwight. They connected right away and Dwight ended up staying for much longer than the planned 30 minutes.
He wanted to know why he was the only one on her bucket list. "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" was her reply.
As he was leaving, she noted that he was much taller than her. "No," Dwight replied, "you are taller than me because your spirit lifts you up."
Class act, Dwight.
