Jimmy Johnson's Medical Fund

As most of you Know Jimmy Johnson was at the MDA Car show in Roanoke, Virginia on March 5, 2017 when at the end of the evening Jimmy was loading the car into the trailer and Had a Heart Attack. Jimmy was taken to Roanoke, Memorial Hospital.

Jimmy will need to have a Triple Heart Bypass operation and an Operation for a Vascular Blockage in his neck.

 The Doctors have been going back and forth as to do both surgeries together or separate, well they decided to perform both Surgeries on Tuesday March 14th, 2017 however the surgeries were postponed because Jimmy has an infection in which we must clear up prior to being operated on. So the team of Doctors agreed to send Jimmy Home (where Jimmy would be more comfortable) with allot of medicines and a very strong antibiotic to knock out the infection, Jimmy has to Return to Roanoke, VA to see the Cardiologist on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at which time they will do some tests and see if the infection is gone, If the infection is gone they will at that time schedule the Surgeries.

 Jimmy has run The Racer's Reunion Support Tour for the last 12 years traveling thru out the country spending his own money, representing A much needed program which supports the Retired Legends & Families of Racing.  Jimmy Owns and operates the Nascar Simulator which helps fund the organization and helps offset some of the traveling expenses occurred while doing the events. Jimmy also raises money at these events by selling Memorabilia for different charities.

I personally spent a week with Jimmy and many other Legends of Racing Last Month in Daytona at Back to The Roots and Racing's North Turn Events. I was proud to have had the opportunity of meeting many of the Good Ole Boys of the Sport we all love!

The Reason we are starting this page is to help raise Funds to help Jimmy with medical Expenses, Travel Expenses back and forth to the Dr's and Hospital in Roanoke, VA which is 3 hours away, and to help Financially with his living expenses while Jimmy will be in Recovery. 

We Had to cancel Many scheduled events that Jimmy was to attend over the next several Months due to the heart attack and the fact that after the surgeries Jimmy will have to go to a Rehab for at least 30 days and then still will not be able to work for another 3 months.

Donation's received will help support Jimmy's income loss and again pay for ongoing medical bills that insurance will not cover. We will be very grateful and blessed for any donation amount.

Thank you Kindly and God Bless- Please Keep Jimmy Johnson in your prayers over the next several Months.
