As you may know Justin Penso is a 14 year old boy who has been fighting against cancer for 8 years already. Unfortunately, recently they discovered the cancer had spread to his lungs.
To the surprise of many this little boy did send a message on his own, asking everyone to keep him in their prayers. Before we knew this message went viral on social media. People were immediately touched by the fact that with his short age, he was only asking us to pray for him.
Justin is an inspiration for many, we have seen all kinds of people (ages-sex-religion etc.) caring for him these days. He has even inspired a group of volunteers to print some T-shirts with a special design in order to collect funds and also to spread the message of faith Justin asked for.
We consider Justin to be a special boy, not because he’s going through cancer, but the way he’s been dealing and fighting against it. He has united the majority of our island with his faith. The fact that Justin is open about his condition, makes it very easy to create awareness and educate ourselves about CANCER, it opens our eyes that no matter how old you are it might also knock on your door.
With this letter we want to ask you all if you would also like to participate by buying the “Justin” T-shirt. Each shirt costs Fls 20, – .
- Fls 7: Cost of the shirt
- Fls 13: Goes directly to the bank account of “Justin foundation”
Ø There is NO win in the sale of the shirts.
On March 15, 2016 we will communicate thru a press-conference how many T-shirts were sold and the total amount which was collected. These funds will be used for Justin’s treatment or any expenses he and his family may need for his alternative treatment.
May we collect a great amount we will also help more children who may need funds for their treatment. The main goal is to create awareness and educate ourselves about cancer, Justin has inspired us to start, but for sure this is only the beginning to help and support many others.
