Please help Justin with his fight against cancer!

Justin Cozbey is the son of Debbie Ehrlich and Christopher "Kookie' Cozbey. He is the grandson of Donna and Adrian Morley. The nephew of Diana and Troy Trujillo, Jerri and Brent Atkinson,and Roy Matthew Cozbey and Kimmie Bonner. The oldest brother of Arin, Patrick, Riley, Jaxsen, Evan and Cade.

Justin is a vibrant and inspirational 16 year old, who enjoys reading about history and watching U-Tube. He was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 8 and on August 7, 2012 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, or ALL for short. ALL is a form of leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells characterized by excess lymphoblasts. Malignant, immature white blood cells continuously multiply and are overproduced in the bone marrow. ALL causes damage and death by crowding out the normal cells in the bone marrow, and spreading to other organs. Although ALL is the most common children's leukemia and is most likely curable in children, Justin's age works against him and his prognoses poorer.

Justin at this time is not covered by insurance, though the family is working diligiantly to get him covered by the  programs that are offered to children with cancer. At this time,  all expenses are out-of-pocket. Justin is currently undergoing chemo-therapy and recently one of his medications had to be changed due to he developed a blood clot at his pick site. The cost for Justin's treatments, as you can imagine, are very expensive. The family is asking if  you could please help by giving a little gift.
