“After 13 months of courageously redefining what it means to live with cancer, Justin passed peacefully early this morning, Sunday, May 29th,” his father Bob Hardy announced on Twitter.
Hardy was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer in April 2021 and had been receiving treatment while competing on the school’s basketball team. According to a statement from his family shared on a GoFundMe page, Hardy also graduated early from the university with a double major while undergoing treatment.
