Justin is currently battling with Adult Medulloblastoma. Medulloblastoma is a rare form of brain cancer.


Hello Everyone

I have a friend named Justin who is currently battling with Adult Medulloblastoma. Medulloblastoma is a rare form of brain cancer. Now Justin was an unusually upbeat person for having cancer, I've never once heard him complain about having to deal with it. That was until today, when I came onto facebook and saw this.

“Y'know... I put off the vibe that beating cancer was easy... because up until now, it was. I was a rock-star, I thought I had this thing... but now, I'm weak. So weak I can't stop crying because of the feeling of helplessness. I'm halfway through this thing and I just want it to be over. I thought it was defining my character, my person, but no... it's just breaking me down, cell by cell, day by day. I thought I'd be able to take on all the bills I'll have at the end, thought that I'd be able to get a job and start working my life out again, thought I'd have some control and be able to direct the course of my life, thought that I'd be able to stand firmly on my own through it all, but I can't. Accepting this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. I don't want pity. I don't want to be felt sorry for. I don't want help. I just want this to be over...“

And that really sums up the person Justin is, in the years I have known him, he has never asked for help he has never asked for pity. Justin always takes it upon himself to make everyone else happy and make sure everyone is having fun and laughing.

When I saw what he posted on facebook, it broke my heart to know that it finally got to him, and even though that he had this single moment of weakness that he didn't want anyone’s help. That’s when I decided that I was going to help him. I spoke with Justin and he needs about $10,000 to cover his treatments which include 48 weeks of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of radiation in his brain and spine. Now I realize everyone can't donate, times are tough, but every little bit helps. If you can't donate, please post this on facebook and twitter to see if you can find someone who will be able to donate. And if you can donate, Justin thanks you from the bottom of his heart. With these donations Justin have to worry if he can make each payment so he can get the treatment he needs. If you donate please email and if you can't donate but want to help by spreading the word, please email to let me know you are spreading the word. Everyone who donates will get a letter from Justin personally thanking you, if we get over the 10,000 needed I will buy a plane ticket and fly to his house in northern california record me giving him the check and put it on youtube.Justin really thanks everyone for every little bit of help.
