Calgary couple Carol and Paul Gracia are playing host to a very special visitor this week.

For the first time, they’ll be meeting the Texas stranger who saved their son’s life.

Erik, now a healthy nine year old boy, was battling leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant a few years ago.

Brent Lewelling, 23, registered to be a donor in high school and immediately agreed to help.

Erik calls Brent, “Superman Bone Marrow.”

During the five day visit, the Gracia and Lewelling families will take a trip to Banff and get a backstage tour of the Grandstand Show at the Calgary Stampede.
