Justin – Hero of the Month

Name: Justin
Age: 18

Hero of the Month Boy

Justin has a condition – Fried Reich’s Ataxia – that requires him to use a wheelchair, and must depend on others for assistance, even for basic needs. Yet, he maintains a positive outlook during his therapy sessions. He wants very much to improve his strength and although he really would like to lift weights, his heart condition prevents him from fully participating in body building as much as he would like. This is yet another limitation to his lifestyle that he must endure though he doesn’t let anything get him down. He patiently follows the restrictions imposed by his doctor and therapists and maintains an active-as-possible lifestyle. He enjoys hunting and fishing, and is willing to accept modifications to these activities that others might shun.
