My Story

Justin is the middle triplet in a traveling circus family known as the Flying Condolucis!  Seriously, Justin is the greatest kid you could ever meet who just happens to have had cancer, three times, and has every intention of being cancer-free and becoming a pediatric oncologist when he grows up.  He is also a devoted Boston Red Sox fan, theatre geek and dog lover.  This is his journey, thanks for following along...On April 11, 2007 Justin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and fell into the standard risk, pre-b category.  He spent the next 3.2 years in treatment at the Valerie Center at Monmouth Medical Center.On a routine check-up on December 13, 2010, six months off-treatment, it was discovered that had relapsed.  His treatment was moved to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.  He underwent 1 year of intense chemo, 22 rounds of radiation and 1 year of maintenance chemo.  He completed treatment on March 1, 2013. On June 4, 2013 we got the horrible news once again, Justin had relapsed.  He underwent intensive chemo again which lead to some serious complications but got him to the point where he could receive a bone marrow transplant.  On September 26, 2013 Justin's sister Annie underwent the painful process of retrieving stem cells from her hip bone and later that day that precious gift of live-saving cells were infused into Justin.  He remained in the hospital for 9 weeks and continues his recovery at home. Please feel free to post your well wishes and questions here. Justin firmly believes that he's beaten cancer once and for all.  "When you pass through the water, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.  When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you." Isaiah 43:2
