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 was a happy, healthy 12-year-old boy just starting junior high. After complaining for several days of headaches a MRI revealed a spot on his brain which led to surgery at Royal Oak Beaumont. On October 2, 2013 he was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma High Level, Stage IV (GBM). Justin Journey led us to the front doors of St. Jude where life went from bicycles and baseball to hospitals and doctors… Our superhero lost his battle August 7, 2014.
