On January 18th, 2013, Justin went to the doctor due to days of vomiting and chest pains. The previous week Justin had the flu and the assumption was he still had not recovered. The family doctor was not available that morning so Justin decided to go to the local urgent care clinic to be seen and prescribed something for his symptoms.
What started with a simple X-Ray to determine the source of pain and shortness of breath would lead to the biggest shock of Justin’s life. A tumor that measured almost 20cm in size was found in his left lung and the family’s life was forever changed.
The days and weeks after the discovery of the tumor would be full of stress, frustration and mystery as the medical team attempted to complete a diagnosis. Dealing with cancer is never easy and with My Cancer Chronicles, you go inside the head of a cancer patient, inside a family trying to pick up the pieces.
