As most of us know medical expenses and travel expenses can place a financial burden on any family. I am reaching out to our community to help this “Always Smiling” guy through this challenging journey.
Your donation you choose to graciously donate will be used to help Bennie with his surgery in Houston and the treatments that will follow.
If anyone would like to donate Alaska Airlines miles or a companion fare please contact me and we can discuss.
Any help will be appreciated!!
Please come and celebrate with him at Raleigh Johnsons house 1129 Coppet Street from 3:00 - 7:00pm so Bennie can show you his appreciation with family, friends. Drinks and BBQ in a garden setting.
He hopes to see you all there.
"I have just finished meeting with the clinician team, I was told the type of cancer that I have can be very strong and aggressive. At this time they're not requiring me to do radiation. But the doctors said I could elect to go on with radiation procedures if I chose to. My number have come out very good and low so I am not required to do radiation at this time, which is very positive. I will continue to be monitored my medical team every 3 to 4 months or until they consider me in remission or cancer-free.
I will also be returning to the cancer treatment center to follow up on complications and side effects from the surgery.
I feel good and this has been a positive trip.
Thank you everyone who has been praying for me and my family.
P.S. I choose life, and I choose to Live!!
Greeting Friends and Family,
The Doctors has just release me yesterday to travel. So, I will be returning to Fairbanks on March 4th in the afternoon.
I wanted to take this opportunity to address everybody and personally Thank you all, for your Prayers, Moral support and generous
contributions. One would never imagine the overwhelming feelings one would endure until they're faced with a life threatening illness.
Well, God has answered our Prayers. For now...the Pathology report has come back favorably and the surgery has been deemed successful.
There will be several return visits to Houston for follow ups, before they can give a Cancer free diagnosis. But, God is Good,and he will
walk with me through this emotional journey. There are No Words that I could ever say that would express my Gratitude. Without each and everyone
of you, I don't think I would have been strong enough to do this alone, in fact I know I wasn't strong enough. There are a few of you I need to acknowledge by name. Karen, Amy and John Bachner. Thank you for your Persistence because, I now know, I have been taught what unconditional Love looks like. By way of the Go Fund Me campaign, which I pridefully refused. Love, Blessings and Good Health to All. I will keep everyone in the loop of my progress.
Thank you again and God Bless,
What day is the BBQ?
Lovin' you, brother...
Sending you good thoughts and prayers, Bennie. Hang tough!
So glad to hear things are looking good. Keep being strong and we will keep you in our thoughts always. ♥ KICK CANCERS ASS BENNIE!
Continued prayers Bennie!
Thinking of you and praying too that things go well. Prayers for the team working on your care.
Bennie, I don't know you, but I'm so glad I saw this story on your GoFundMe Page. I'm a cancer survivor too. I hope your surgery goes splendidly and you're back in the pink of health very soon.
Wishing you a full recovery Bennie!
This is not good news at all Bennie! My thoughts and prayers are with you, I am unfortunately battling my own cancer and the bills associated or I would be more than happy to assist. You are a good man, keep your head high and your faith strong.
