Navy Seal Needs Help

When I stopped by to check out Always On Watch I found out about Justin, a 27 year old war Veteran that has been diagnosed with leukemia and is in need of help. We hear a lot of talk about showing support for our troops. This might be your chance to show some of that support. I hope you will check out the link and see what you can do to repay Justin for serving his country. I'd also like to ask you to remember him in your prayers.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Justin Legg was diagnosed with Leukemia. The next six months brought over 50 chemo and radiation treatments and a move to Seattle where he received a bone marrow transplant. But that didn’t stop this warrior.

Once recovered, Justin moved on to a new assignment in Virginia Beach. Two years later, he developed Graft Versus Host Disease, in which the immune system that developed from the donor bone marrow attacked parts of his body. Justin fought this disease and rehabilitated himself well enough to become an operational SEAL Platoon Commander.

Then, complications of a lung biopsy brought on complete respiratory failure and put Justin in a coma for two weeks, a downward spiral that led to a double lung transplant. Justin became the first, and still only, double lung-transplantee in the world to climb Mt. McKinley and to run three half marathons.

As a twelve year veteran, Justin retired from the Navy and went on to receive a Master’s Degree in International Relations from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington D.C. Today Justin takes on all that life presents and lives each day to the fullest, one breath at a time.

WOW! I can't believe he can do that. Check out http://assistedlivinglittlerockarkansas.com
