On November 7th, Justin went to the emergency room to treat crippling lower back pain. He had been to six previous appointments in the preceding months without receiving any direct answer correlating to his pain. It was here we found out Justin has testicular cancer.
This is a very treatable cancer, most common in men ages 20-39. During the previous appointments multiple physicals and blood tests had been run to try to locate the source of pain yet somehow the cancer went undetected. We want to remind everyone that nobody knows your body better than yourself, and if you think something is wrong don’t stop asking questions until you receive an answer.
As for Justin’s journey to a cancer free life, he had a tumor removed on November 13th and is now going through three rounds of chemo with the possible end date of 2/5/18.
If you know Justin, you know what an amazing spirit he has. He is constantly working outside, sketching out remodeling projects, or wood working. This diagnoses greatly limits his ability to do this, and we are focusing on keeping him comfortable and sending positive vibes his way.
John Beins has been kind enough to deliver Tammy and Justin daily meals, and since they have this covered many people have reached out to ask how they can contribute. I started this gofundme for Justin’s medical bills during the chemo process. We are so grateful for the support and send love out to all.
As Justin would say, one love and positive vibes ✌️
