Welcome to Justin's CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Justin's cancertreatment and progress. We appreciate your support and prayers during this time when it matters most.
In December, Justin traveled with his family to Atlanta, GA from Taipei, Taiwan (where they live) so thatJustin could receive a heart valve transplant. This surgery had been anticipated as Justin was born with acongenital heart defect, and despite a few complications, the surgery was successful. However, after the surgeryJustin began experiencing debilitating headaches, and testing revealed a walnut-sized brain tumor at the back ofhis head. The tumor was removed and pathology showed that Justin has Medulloblastoma, a fast-growing, high-grade malignant tumor. Justin will be undergoing radiation at the University of Florida, Jacksonville, followedby chemotherapy back in Atlanta.
Please pray for Justin, for his parents, and for his older brother, Aaron. They have had to uproot their lives,leaving behind their home, their work, their church, their dog, and the boys' school and friends so that Justin canreceive treatment in the US. Their world has very suddenly turned inside out. Thank you for supporting andpraying for Justin and the whole Freeman family during this time.
