Johny suffers from PTSD and depression. Johny has recently lost his job through illness and now has lost his Gym to spiralling costs and competition from the 24/7 gym heavyweights! Sometimes unfortunate and undeserved things happen to those who do not deserve it. This situation prompted friends of Johny to band together in an attempt to raise funds to lift him out of debt and get back on his feet, restore his faith in people and give him a helping hand.
I think all of those that have met Johny would know that he is the first to give a mate a hand, stick his neck out for them or spend his last dollar to help someone else out. This time he needs your help and... as we all know, he won't ask for it himself!
On Friday 4th of August 2017 after a 3 day journey in 2C (Lyell McEwen) Johny wrote the following post. Johny had had his phone and wallet stolen from his hospital room whilst receiving therapy which resulted in a serious breach of trust, safety and privacy. Sadly Johny's treatment was cut short due to a decision not to return.
"I'm home now long story I don't wish to talk about yet, the last 24 hrs have been like being in the twilight zone. But if anyone is interested I'm going to be teaching my last fitness class at 6:30 and martial arts class 7:30 at the 19a Playford crescent tonight before I take everything down. I've had my phone and wallet stolen from the room I was in at the hospital so. Life can throw some nasty curve balls and lay the boots in when you are down, but it's never impossible to get back up and dust yourself off and learn from the situation. Thank you for all your support and kind words you all have kept me going and given me the drive to not just survive but to keep pushing forward. I'd specially like to thank Michelle Louise and my kids I can't put into words how strong they have been through out this shit storm. Thanks again for your support and I love you all for it. I will show you all how much it has meant to me by using my situation to help as many others who struggle with depression as I can. But for now I'm focusing on recovery.
