My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. Justin enjoys playing video games and loves soccer. It all started with him waking up in the middle of the night with pain on his leg, took him into the ER & they thought he just hit his leg against something, to ice it and the swelling should go down in a couple of days. It did. 2 weeks later I get a phone call from his school nurse and she stated Justin was complaining of pain on the same area but this time there was a lump and he started to limp. Picked him up and took him to the ER, was there from 1:30pm-12midnight they ran tests and from here on tests after tests, back to back appointments on the same day, no break from Monday to Friday appointments to get a conclusion of what’s going on. The day they confirmed his diagnosis we knew things would drastically change. It’s hard, exhausting, frightening having to sleep with one eye open to make sure he doesn’t have a fever, doesn’t bleed non-stop, night sweats, shaking/shivering vomiting etc. we just have to be strong and pray everything will work out in the end. But no-one should endure this challenge alone, you need all the support you can get. Justin is very active, smart and strong and he’s been taking it like a champ let’s continue to encourage him that he is not alone. Thank you!
