Texas Children’s Cancer Center will celebrate its 12th year of An Evening with a Legend with an event honoring our 2017 Legend, Michael Phelps. This memorable evening will feature an informal interview with Michael Phelps about his journey to become a gold medal legend and what is in store for the next phase of his life.

Gold is the signature color of the childhood cancer awareness ribbon, and no one personifies going for the gold more than Michael Phelps. This legendary Olympian has redefined our ideals of what is possible for human skill and endurance. In five Summer Games, he won 23 gold medals and 28 overall medals! Phelps has more world records and world championship medals than any other swimmer in history and has created a legacy that may never be replicated.

As we celebrate Michael Phelps’ astounding accomplishments, we believe that his story of fight and endurance give our patients hope that they can fight this insidious disease. These patients are truly the legends of our hearts, and your support of An Evening with Michael Phelps will make a difference in their lives.

We hope you can join us for this incredible evening!
