Day 1361 – Life after Chemo Photo Gallery


6CB11C58-F00F-40F0-B474-86258C2751C5This week, Justin will present his first oral book report/biography research project. I think Justin is drawn to people who are a little touched in the head. 

Today, Justin played his first ever basketball game in a school intramural program. You could not have guessed this kid was, at one time, deathly ill, unable to walk, on chemotherapy for three years and sick and miserable most of that time. But not today, baby, not today!

We have our bumps in the road and tired days, but Justin continues to excel in 4th grade. I spent the first few months having anxiety when he cried every morning about going to school and spent a lot of time going to the nurse’s office. But I never gave up on gently pushing him forward. I know God was gently pushing ME when I felt weak.

And somewhere along the way, Justin changed from being a patient, a cause, a survivor.

He became a kid again. 

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 1 Peter 5:10




One thought on “Day 1361 – Life after Chemo Photo Gallery

  1. My son, Justin, was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on 9-11-16 at the age of 12. We were 2 months for our “done” date., when he complained of pain in his back. He had a confirmed relapse diagnosis on 11/11/19. We are going for bone marrow transplant on 3/18/20. I truly believe my son has a story to tell in the future. (Jeremiah 29:11). Your blog is great and I am so happy for you and your Justin! By the way, I love frozen chicken! Keep up the great work mom!
    Sincerely, Kirsten (US Michigan)
