Gold Ribbon Hero: Justin P.

Meet Justin, a stage 3 acute lymphoblastic leukemia hero.

One week before Justin’s 12th birthday, Justin was diagnosed with cancer. He had complained of chest pains and was taken to urgent care. After a chest x-ray was performed, the family was told to go to Stanford Children’s Hospital for additional testing. 

He relapsed in 2017 but still continued with his chemotherapy treatments. A bone marrow transplant was no longer available. The last few months of Justin’s life were ‘extremely challenging’ because of long-term side effects. He suffered with mobility issues and loss of kidney function. 

His mother fondly remembers Justin by saying, “warriors are not born; they are forged through adversity and hardship. Justin’s name means ‘righteous, just, fair. Since the day he was diagnosed, he lived up to his name. He was loved by all he came in contact with. He was the life of any party and loved basketball.
