Timothy and Renee Johnson Recovery Fund

On Saturday, May 1, 2021 our parents were brutally attacked in Chicago while they were doing yard work for our 95 year old grandmother. 


They have suffered life changing injuries that will impact them and our familiy forever. 

Our father has also been battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for the last 10 years. Simultaneously, he and our mother have been caretakers for their mothers/our grandparents.


This has been a devastating blow to our family and our finances. 

We are asking for your your prayers and support as we navigate through this difficult time. 
Thank you for your help.

Update: Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. The support has been overwhelming and humbling. Our parents are in recovery and have also offered their thanks for everything you are doing to help us. We had an opportunity to share our story on the local news. Please see below:
