This is a statement written by Mary Harter, Justin's mother on April 8, 2017: "On December 8th (2016), Justin was involved in a freak accident. 72+% of his body was burned when a gas can exploded . He suffered 3rd degree on his body and 2nd on his face. His condition was critical and they referred to him as a horrific burn.  He's had multiple surgeries and has been hospitalized for 123 days as of today. He had a tracheotomy, was on a ventilator, dialysis and had a feeding tube until today. He had approximately 12-15 tubes pumping medicine, vitamins and supplements into his body. He was in a medically induced coma for a long time and then was highly medicated. Drs say he is a miracle and his heart rated dropped to 20 and he almost coded, they had to give him Epi. He is now in the rehab center of the hospital, where he will remain until he is discharged. We were told we were in for a marathon not a sprint and they were right. God's had him from the start and he's not done with him yet!" Please come out and help support this family!
