A man from Englewood will be in attendance when President Obama addresses a joint session of Congress to discuss health care on Wednesday night.
Nathan Wilkes has a 6-year-old son, Thomas, who was born with chronic health issues, including hemophilia.
Wilkes' insurance eventually hit a cap paying for Thomas' care.
Wilkes introduced Obama a few weeks ago when he was in Grand Junction, and was invited to sit in the president's box Wednesday night.
Wilkes says he's not really sure of his exact role, or if Obama will mention him in his speech.
However, he says he does know he'll get to meet First Lady Michelle Obama.
