Dustane Johnson's Hip

Some of you may have noticed or are already aware  that Dustane is in need of a hip surgery.  This particular surgery is only performed in Belgium, where his first hip surgery was also conducted.

  His hip and the pain he endures daily is impacting his quality of life as he is constantly in pain which affects all aspects of his life.

Dustane suffered a career ending injury that ended his soccer career well before he was ready to stop playing.  Accumulation of the injury, surgeries and lengthy rehabilitation it has now resulted in his other hip to require a similar surgery.

 Dustane has been coaching soccer for many years in Ontario and has been within several different clubs  throughout his years as a coach.  Though, he is constantly in pain he continues to contribute to the sport that he loves both in his community and outside. He has coached in many clubs over the past 15 years. He works with youth from age 3 and older.  Although he is no longer able to play he is now using his passion and knowledge of soccer to coach and mentor players. 

In addition to coaching Dustane is also a DJ in his personal time.  His passion or love for music has keeps him heavily involved in DJing, even though his hip condition sometimes makes it challenging.   He currently DJ's for weddings, nightclubs and private events ie: Birthdays

 Without this surgery he most likely will not be able to continue as a coach, being on the field increases his pain and worsens his condition. Giving up coaching would not only, be a huge loss to him but to young players who could benefit from his coaching ability. 

The cost to this surgery is significant and is extending the time before Dustane can have the procedure scheduled.  The delay is causing his hip condition to seriously degrade.

We hope that you will consider supporting Dustane in order for him to obtain the surgery he requires.

Thank you in advance for any support you can provide!
