Instead of being at home in OKC for one last night before checking in to the hospital for her bone marrow transplant, Lorelei Decker will be in Phoenix tonight with Oklahoma City Thunder Coach Scott Brooks. The Thunder's graciousness toward Lorelei in her wish to be coach for a day has earned The Thunder top honors from Make-A-Wish. (That's huge--there were over 14,000 wishes granted last year.) We can't think of anything more perfect to keep Lorelei's mind off the dreadful days ahead. And since she's not well enough to fly commercial airlines, she gets to fly in a private Learjet to the awards ceremony! Much more information will follow but we're hesitant to steal The Thunder's thunder (pun intended) so we'll let them lead with the press about the event. However, I may leak a photo or two from the jet!
Here's a link to the original story of her wish: http://thunder-nba.com/thunderWeb/MakeAWish/
