Justin’s Fabulous Fight

Justin Alexander White is one of a kind. The happiest, friendliest, most HILARIOUS 9 year old you could ever meet in your life! He loves dancing, swimming, Pokémon, and music (huge Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande fan!!) His mother Ana and I became instant best friends 24 years ago in 4th grade. We aren’t blood but we are family. The moment I first met Justin I knew he was destined for greatness. At 3 years old I remember that he was already one of the most vivacious, outspoken, energetic kids I had ever met in my life! Not to mention the most incredible naturally talented dancer (seriously you should see this kid dance!) I have had the privledge of watching him grow up and become best friends with my niece Addison. The two of them are absolutely inseparable!
Anyone who meets Justin instantly falls in love with his amazing little personality! On August 14, 2018 Justin was accidentally kicked in the leg by another child while playing at school which resulted in a fracture of his femur. Of course knowing that this is the strongest bone in your body we all found it so hard to believe that a simple kick from another child was able to fracture his bone. Ana began to suspect something was wrong. Fast forward to August 22, 2018, Justin was picked up from school early after having intense pains in his leg. This is the day we received the awful news that Justin had a tumor in his thigh, it all made sense, the fracture was a result of an already weakened bone caused by the tumor. Osteosarcoma. I will never forget the feeling as I frantically searched Google looking for any information. It caught all of us off guard, our happy, healthy little dancer, all of us were floored and in total disbelief. We still are. The pain, the fear, the anguish and the uncertainty of that day were incredibly overwhelming for everyone who loves Justin. Justin however, despite having to sit in a hospital, all he could do was talk about making music videos in his wheelchair, how fabulous the nurses and volunteers were. Despite everything he was still his regular huge ball of sunshine self. Next thing you know, we all turned to fight mode, we are NOT going to let anything bring our boy down! We are all staying strong for our little buddy! Ana, her husband Ralph and Justin’s baby sister Ariana all have a very long road ahead of them, but we are with them no matter what! Justin is still in the process of having tests done, soon doctors will know what his treatment plan will be and we can get the ball rolling towards getting him better! Absolutely anything will help, the last thing this family needs to worry about is groceries/gas/Ariana’s daycare, all they need to focus on is Justin and helping him conquer this! I started this Go Fund Me to hopefully help make this battle even a little tiny bit easier to face. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!
