WHY WE RIDE

Justin's Journey to Cancer Free
@Shrinkandremove

Justin Wilson, at the age of 22 was complaining of back pain. He went to Urgent Care and no one would have ever imagined they would have heard the word, cancer.

In May 2021, Justin was diagnosed with metastatic Ewing's sarcoma, an extremely rare, highly aggressive form of cancer.

When researching and meeting with his medical team, they were left with the harsh reality of what they were facing.
*Ewing sarcoma is primarily a pediatric cancer.
*It is a tumor or tumors that can develop in a person's bone or soft tissue
*Less than 250 children and young adults are diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma each year.
*Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget is devoted to all pediatric cancer.
*For many types of pediatric sarcomas, treatment protocols and therapies have not advanced in the past 30 years.
*The prognosis for metastatic disease has not improved in 30 years.

Justin began chemotherapy on June 7, 2021, and for the past seven months, he has endured 45 chemo sessions, 32 sessions of radiation, multiple blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, over 22 nights spent in the hospital, a stem cell retrieval, and too many trips to the doctor's office to count. And he's not done yet; he is scheduled for a minimum month-long hospital stay as he undergoes a week of High Dose Chemotherapy followed by an autologous stem cell transplant. This is Justin's best hope that any cancer cells remaining would be killed off.

Follow Justin's progress as he starts his journey to a Cancer free life.
