The University of Minnesota admitted him immediately after his diagnosis. He has started chemotherapy and he will be spending at least a month in the hospital.
Justin has always been a hard working, devoted father and husband. He and his wife Cathy have 3 boys. Gunner 19, Jesse 10, and DJ 1.
The past year for his family has had a huge blessing with the birth of their son Daniel James. But this year has also been difficult financially and emotionally, as their son was born prematurely weighing 1lb 8oz.
DJ, thankfully is doing great now. But as with most families that have had premature babies, it has been a financial struggle. With the help of friends, family, and hard work on their part, they were able to come back financially and settle in as a family of 5.
As a result of Justin's sudden diagnosis, their family is back down to one income again .
As of right now, there is no way to know when Justin will be able to go back to work.
Any donations to help his family in their time of need would be greatly appreciated and go towards living and traveling costs for the foreseeable future.
