Thanks To All that Supported Us at the Race

Audrey, Justin ,myself and the rest of our family want to thank everybody who supported our team Justin's Quest for the DC Race for Hope for the Cure. It was a beautiful day, sunny and a bit cool. Again, I have to pinch myself that I am at this race to find a cure for brain tumors because my son Justin has one. It is so surreal to  see him in the yellow survivor shirt. Thankfully he is a survivor as we pass by the memorial tent of those that passed away from a brain tumor...your heart just breaks. I want to give a big shout out and personal thanks to my dear friend Robbie who I have known for over 36 years. He has been at the race for the past 3 years, but this year he was so instrumental in helping Justin get through the walk. This is a very hard and emotional day for Justin. He is sad yet glad to be helping out to find a cure. It has to be hard for a kid to deal with this.Justin, myself and Robbie walked together. Robbie was great keeping Justin engaged with his wonderful stories. Before you know it the race was over. Justin is so glad to raise money and awareness for a cure. For a moment put yourself in his shoes wearing his yellow shirt thankfully branded a survivor but still not knowing your outcome and destiny with this terrible disease. Her went home after the race emotionally drained and slept for 4 hours. This Monday is another big day for us in Boston at Mass General Hospital for Justin having his MRI and Doctor's appointments. We are praying for the best. I will keep you all posted and thanks again for the love and support!
