Justin is the middle triplet in a traveling circus family known as the Flying Condoluci's! Seriously, Justin is the greatest kid you could ever meet who just happens to have cancer, for the second time, and has every intention of beating the disease and becoming a pediatric oncologist when he grows up.
He is also a devoted Boston Red Sox fan, theatre geek and dog lover. This is his journey, thanks for following along...
