My Story

Justin is a typical type A personality. He loves to be in charge, loves to give orders and be the boss. He is also very caring and kind to others. He is helpful to children who are younger than he is. He is determined and detail oriented. He is powerful in mind and body. Inspired by Dr. Paul Meyers pediatric oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Justin's his main goal is to become a pediatric oncologist and help other children afflicted with cancer. Justin loves to be outside. He got his nickname "the mower" because when he was young he enjoyed spending time with Dad and mowing the lawn. He started helping when he was about 3. He carried his name to the football field where he is a force to be reckoned with and "mows" down his opponents. He loves baseball and is very fond of soccer. Fishing is a favorite also but all in all he is willing to try just about anything. Justin fought his disease with passion never letting up. He was strong and was not going to let anything take him down. He astounded the hospital staff and inspired them to tell stories of his strength until this day. He remained in school throughout his treatment and advanced to the next grade with the rest of his class. He never gave up the fight and won the battle in the end.
