4 months ago - Johanna was diagnosed with a form of Kidney Cancer called Renal Cell Carcinoma in the beginning of June.  A few weeks later she had her kidney removed due to a cancerous mass. The doctors said that the surgery went well and that she did not need any other treatment at that time.

After several months and high hopes of recovery, Johanna began to experience pain in her back so she decided to go to the emergency room.  The doctors discovered that she had a fractured vertebrae caused by another mass in her spine. The scan also showed spots on her lungs. In the beginning of September she had surgery on her back to replace the fractured vertebrae and remove the mass in her spine. This surgery also goes well, but a couple days later, while still in the hospital, the doctors discover she had a blood clot in her lung. Johanna is still recovering in the hospital, and once she is well enough she will start radiation.  

Johanna (Joha) has two sons ages 13 and 4. She has been a fighter through this whole process and puts all of her strength into healing for her boys. Every time she sees them her face lights up with a huge smile.  She is an amazing mother, sister and friend. She prays for everyone else before herself.
