My Story

Justin always brightened everyone's day! He loved playing with all of his monster trucks and riding his bike. He was always a very happy little boy even when he was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. We spent most the year in Columbus Children's Hospital where he touched so many hearts and was looked up to as a big brother to many children that was also ill. Justin was always worried about how his friends were feeling and wanted to check on them to make sure they were ok. He always told us he knew he was going to get better and that his cancer was going away. If Justin was here with us today he would love to be participating in this wonderful event to help other children who are ill and he would be honored that we are participating in his name.
