Ambassador Bio: Michael Muriett

I know many of you already through my prior work with Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation doing education for the foundation. I'm the father of Justin Muriett who was a late stage (3C) diagnosis when he was 19 years old. He already had multiple mets when diagnosed including a retroperitoneal mass, a spinal mass, and small lung mets. Justin went through chemo, an RPLND, Radiation, and also physical and occupational therapy after losing leg function due to the spinal tumor. During radiation, Justin was actually terminally diagnosed by Dr. Einhorn in Indiana, due to the fact that he had a malignant transformation of his tumor to a more aggressive PET tumor. I came into contact with Kim Jones just days after Justin passed away and began working with her about 6 months later. I love the contacts and connections I have made with other families that have faced the same tragedy, and with the survivors I have met personally like Ricky James in NOLA, and Josh Cooper as we sweated it out here in AZ on the Vans Warped Tour. Each year I organize and perform at a music festival I put together with local musicians called Ball-A-Palooza. I look forward to getting to know many of you better as time goes on. Please feel free to ask me any questions!
