News Release
Harlem Wizards to honor twins in advance of Wednesday game at Union High School - 04/16/18

The Harlem Wizards, a traveling basketball performing group, will be playing at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18 at Union High School, to benefit Harmony Elementary PTA.  However, two new special players will be “signed” by the team earlier in the day: a set of six year-old twins, Adrian and Declan Reagan

Adrian and Declan were scheduled to start Kindergarten at Harmony Elementary this past fall. But as the first day of school got closer, it was clear that only Adrian would be in class as Declan was recovering from a bone marrow transplant to fight off his second occurrence of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. The July 2017 transplant appeared initially successful, but his cancer returned again in October 2017. This past January, he had another bone marrow transplant, but his cancer again returned and he is now in Hospice Care. 

The Wizards organization said it couldn’t stop thinking about the Reagan family once they heard the story, and arranged for the special presentation on Wednesday morning at 9:25 a.m. at Harmony Elementary. Declan will join Adrian, and Adrian’s entire Kindergarten class, as the Wizards players welcome their new “teammates,” sign them to player contracts, and present them with special team jerseys.  The Reagan family will also be special guests at the evening’s benefit basketball game.
