Justin Mays

UPDATE – June 04, 2015:

Justin went to his next spiritual journey at 3:00 AM; he passed away at Lynchburg General Hospital. He was surrounded by his loving family and is now finally at peace. Many of his amazing friends had the privilege of visiting with him over the past few days and he was surrounded by love, laughter and tears. We will update you with details of arrangements as they become available. Please keep Lisa, Rylee, Morgan, Melanie, Martha, Terry and their entire family in your prayers. Justin knew he was loved and was able to see his friends and share stories with everyone who saw him – even today. He kept his wit and determination until the end.

His family would like to express their deep gratitude for the love and prayers from the friends of this page. It has carried them in hard times and will remain a source of comfort knowing that Justin was loved by so many.

(Note: Justin’s family still needs help with medical expenses.  Please donate if you can.)

Justin Mays is 40 years and is waiting for a life-saving heart transplant.  Justin was diagnosed with congestive heart failure due to a virus that attacked his heart.  He is currently at the Medical College of VA Hospital in Richmond and received a LVAD (Left Ventricle Assist Device) to help his heart function while he waits for a transplant.

Justin is a wonderful father to his daughters Rylee (6) and Morgan (5), a great son, brother and good friend to many. He grew up in Lynchburg, VA, and owns a local, small business – Bedford Avenue Meat Shop.  He works hard and is always there to help others. Justin is committed to his children and wife….Justin made sure that his girls and wife have good health insurance.  Unfortunately, he is without until May 1, 2015.

If you have it in your “heart”, please consider what you can do to help this young man and his family.
