Rock On, Justin!

At Staples High School, Justin Slosberg battled leukemia. With the help of family and friends — all of whom dressed in purple one day, to show support — he returned to classes and to his passion, the drums. He graduated last June, the day after pounding out a great solo at baccalaureate.

On the last day of his 3 1/2-year treatment regimen — just after he moved into his dorm, beginning his freshman year at Berklee College of Music — Justin learned his cancer had returned.

Many of Justin’s bills are not covered by insurance. He’s looking at a 3-week hospital stay, followed by a bone marrow transplant and another 2 months in the hospital

The Slosbergs have been Westporters since Justin was in kindergarten.  Their strong, long local connections have led friends to organize a GoFundMe campaign to cover unpaid bills and treatment costs.
