The Story

Justin Lingenberg is a 16 year old student athlete at Agawam High School who is a member of the volleyball team.
Justin has been diagnosed with pediatric glioma, which is cancer in his brain.
On July 8th while playing volleyball in the Baystate Games in Boston, Justin started to experience a headache. Soon after he was feeling nauseous and the headaches were getting stronger. Fast forward 2 weeks when an MRI was done that showed that Justin has a tumor the size of a clementine on his brain. He was transferred to Boston Children's Hospital on July 31st and on August 3rd Justin underwent surgery to remove some the tumor from his brain. He will likely undergo another surgery to relieve pressure within the next few days.
Once he recovers from the surgeries Justin will start a treatment plan that includes 6 weeks of radiation therapy and chemotherapy at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. 
While continuing his treatment Justin and his parents, Jen and Tom, will stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Brookline. 
We are setting up this youcaring page to help his parents with the financial obligations that will come with his treatment and recovery.
Everyday we think of and pray for Justin and try to think of ways to help. As we continue to pray for a complete recovery, we want to support him and his family anyway we can. We want them to be able to get the best possible treatment and this means staying with him in Boston for at least 6 weeks.
I ask that you consider donating whatever you can to help during this extremely difficult time.  Justin is an amazing young man that would do anything for his friends and family or even complete strangers! He is everything you would want your son to be. 
Please pray that Justin makes a complete recovery so he can continue his life of playing volleyball and hanging out with the many, many people that love him so much.
Please share this page so we can get as many prayers and positive thoughts as possible.
You've got this Justin!!
Thank you!!

It's been 5 weeks since Justin started his radiation treatment in Boston.  Thank you to everyone for your continued support for Justin and his family.  Justin will complete his radiation treatment this Thursday.  At the end of October he will return to Boston every other week for the next phase of the treatment which is chemotherapy. Justin hopes to return to school as the treatment plan permits! The road is long but Justin is a fighter and his positive attitude is amazing!   Please continue to pray for Justin and his family as he continues on his journey through this disease. 

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!
