Justins Story:

A couple of days before Justin's 8th Birthday in January, he was on his way to the doctors with a mild fever and what was thought to be just a childhood virus. On the way there, one side of Justin's face became paralyzed and he was unable to close his eye etc.  The next day Justin's doctor ordered an MRI to check the virus wasn't attacking his eye and causing lasting damage.  This MRI actually revealed Justin had a tennis ball sized tumor on his brain!

 
Justin was rushed into Omaha Childrens Hospital. On his 8th birthday after a small birthday party with his family in his hospital room, Justin underwent major brain surgery to remove the tumor. While the tumor turned out to be even bigger than the doctors expected, the surgery was a success and they managed to remove the entire mass.  
 
The biopsy results from the tumor have now been returned and have shown it to be a pretty aggressive form of cancer called PNET.   Justin's journey is continuing with a treatment regime of radiation and chemotherapy for six weeks followed by chemotherapy for about 6 months.
 
Throughout this experience, Justin has remained so strong and brave and is an inspiration how he is taking it in his stride.  The love, support, prayers and encouragement from friends and family has been invaluable and absolutely overwhelming. If you could continue to keep Justin in your prayers, we would really appreciate it.  To keep up to date with Justin's progress please go to www.gofundme.com/justins-journey which is regularly updated on his journey. We look forward to seeing you at the Benefit Dinner!
 
Love,
 
The Easdale Family - Jeff, Jill, Justin & Jax
