Students at a Bossier City school are lending a helping hand by showing their support to a child undergoing a rare surgery. What makes this even more special is the fact most of these kids have never even met 11 year old Justin Marshall.
Justin was in a serious car accident that has required him to undergo 13 surgeries. His most recent procedure is a brain surgery that happened Wednesday afternoon.
Students at Sun City Elementary wore Justin's favorite color, which is blue all day Wednesday. They also decorated cards that will be mailed to Colorado.
Justin's connection to these students is very unique and involves the military. Starsha Adams lived next door to Justin's family when they were all stationed in Washington D.C. She says there is an unspoken bond shared between military families and that's why she wanted the students in Bossier to get involved.
If you'd like to show support, the public can send get-well cards to Justin Marshall, c/o Children's Hospital Denver, 13123 E 16th Ave, Aurora, CO 80045. Justin will be recovering in Children's Hospital Colorado for at least 5 days after his surgery.
