|The Foundation was
organized in 2002 in memory of Justin, to Join the Battle
Against Cancer in Kids, and Support Local Youth. The foundation
is a non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable organization under
501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code.
Justin was a typical high school
sophomore until his world was rocked in September of 2000 with
the news that he had a cancerous tumor from the Ewings Sarcoma
family of tumors growing in his pelvis. Justin lost his battle
with the disease, but not before he earned the respect and
admiration from many for the courage and determination he
displayed in fighting his illness.
Cancer kills more children in the
United States than any other disease. The Foundation seeks to
promote awareness of the need for funding, and to raise funds in
Justin's memory to provide resources for pediatric cancer
research and offer support to local youth organizations.
