Help Erik Johnson Beat Cancer!


My name is Mark Costantini, and I am utilizing Go Fund Me for the first time, and I am asking for your help..

Have you ever had someone in your life that has had a positive impact, or influenced you in a positive way? How about someone who is a great father, and a loving husband? How about an individual that loves life, and makes people around him feel as though they are important? How about someone who fits the description of "all of the above"? If you know someone that fits the description, then we are similar. However, the person I know has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Ewing Sarcoma.

Ewing Sarcoma is a very rare form of cancer in adults. The process to treat this cancer included several chemotherapy treatments, along with radiation, and surgery.

Erik Harvey Johnson is the friend I am referring to with the diagnosis. Anyone who personally knows Erik will tell you that he is one of the most kind-hearted individuals you will ever meet. He would give you the shirt off of his back, even if it was his last shirt. Erik is happily married for 10 years, with a 4 year old boy, and his wife is 7 months pregnant with another boy on the way. He is a veteran of the United States Navy and is/was the sole provider of income for his household which they recently purchased. Erik is 30 years old.


Due to Erik's diagnosis, he will be unable to work or continue his education. Erik is so young that he does not have a life insurance policy, and due to his diagnosis, he cannot obtain one.

Erik is very positive about his situation, despite being given a 50% chance of beating this. He is very reluctant for his friends to set this up, however it is the least we can do.

Our goal is to raise enough money to help Erik and his family pay his bills while he focuses on beating cancer. As much as Erik has given us during our duration as friends, it is the least we can do.
Sometimes terrible things happen to great people.

Please help us help Erik beat cancer! Let's get this going with #Helperikbeatcancer on social media.

If you have a similar experience, or want to send your thoughts, please send all comments to [email redacted]

100% of donations will go to Erik and his family and all e-mails received will be compiled into a document that we will share with him when the time is right.

Thank you for any help!
