Justin could not update his Facebook page from Everest, but he shed tears when he reached base camp. "Look what I just did- I just had this moment I looked back. Not even a year ago, I wasn't climbing Mount Everest, I wasn't a cancer survivor. It's amazing how much can change in a year. I'm married. I'm going to college."

Justin is now back in Iowa, enrolled in Waldorf College, pursuing a degree in organizational leadership, which he hopes to use to work in cancer nonprofits. And he hopes to continue to kill cancer.
