 NORTHVILLE, MI
Justin was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile Duct Cancer) Stage IV on October 25, 2016. This is a rare cancer especially for a 27 year old. Justin has fought this aggressive form of cancer with the help of doctors from Providence Park Hospital Novi, Cleveland Clinic, MD Anderson in Houston and his main Doctors at U of M Hospital.
His treatment has included chemotherapy, a drug trial, and many other interventions. By donating you are helping Justin pay medical co-pays, supply costs and home health costs that continue to mount.

The Fight Ends

Justin passed away this evening at 7pm. We treasured every minute with him. He was a wonderful and loving son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. Our hearts are broken. We are proud of his determination and grit fighting this awful cancer. He truly was an inspiration and will now be our guardian angel.

Thank you everyone for your support and generosity over the last 15 months.

The Long Journey

Sadly Justin has taken a turn for the worse and was in U of M Hospital for several days last week. He was released home on New Years Eve. The goal now is to keep him comfortable at home.
The need of home medical supplies, equipment and care are very costly. Plus Justin's still paying Cobra medical costs and now his deductible has to be met again with the new year.
Please understand that Justin is not really using social media and Kim is not able to respond to everyone at this time.
We will keep you all updated on the situation any support and prayers you can provide would be appreciated.

Justin returned from MD Anderson in Houston on Friday. He had one procedure there to switch his external drains. Doctors are hoping this might lower Justin's liver levels but as of now he is not able to start any new trials. He is tired but still putting up a fight.

Before Kim and Justin left for Houston, family fun was had at a Red Wings game.

Happy Holidays from all of us to each of you. Please continue to keep Justin in your thoughts and prayers.
