Help Trucker Jut Kick Cancer's Butt

Justin Roden is 26 years old. He and his wife, Micah, live in Abilene, Texas. His dream ever since he  was a little boy, was to become a truck driver.  After years of contemlpating it, he finally made his dream a reality! This is where he gets the nickname Trucker Jut. He absolutely loves his career and does not feel as if he works a day in his life! For years now and years to come, he will be driving his big rig! 

Starting June 2017 Justin started to feel really sick. Constant fevers, night sweats, fatigue, extreme weight loss (30+ pounds), and shortness of breath. With these symptoms, it made being on the road pretty tough. Finally after months of being nagged to go to the doctor, Justin went. The doctor told him it that he had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Basically, he would feel  like this for many, many years. We knew this did not feel right. After another visit, they said he had Epstein–Barr virus or Lymphocryptovirus.  Justin then went in for a cat scan, showing that he had a fist-sized tumor in his chest. Later, he was then diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, which is a cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are part of the body’s immune system. However, the oncologist has been certainly positive that Justin will be cured and will be able to move on from it. 

Amazingly, Justin has had a positive outlook on this situation. His family and friends are giving so much love and support. The only aspect he is worried about is supporting him and his wife financially. Due to going through chemotherapy and radiation for 4-6 months, he will temporarily not be able to drive his truck to make the bucks. The goal for this GoFundMe account is to help Justin and his wife pay medical bills along with personal bills until Justin is cured. Any amount will help. We are all praying that this journey goes smoothly and Justin will be cured. Let's get him back on the road! 

Thank you, and God bless.
