Gary's Medical Fund

As many of you know my father, Gary Johnson, suffered a massive stroke on September 5th, 2017. He went to work that day and when he arrived it happened. Lucky for him he is in such a routine that the guys that he normally has coffee with each morning thought it was weird they hadn't seen him. They found him at his office and immediately called 911. He was rushed to Fairfield Medical Center and was then transported to Ohio State Medical Center where he spent several weeks in the ICU. He then spent several weeks in Dodd Hall at Ohio State for rehab where he started making progress towards recovery. He was then transported to a rehab facility in Lancaster where my parents live. Gary has been there since and is receiving daily physical therapy for him to regain his strength. 

I have decided to start a GoFundMe account for my parents because they are two of the most selfless people and I know they would never do this on their own. Their health insurance is not an ACA approved plan and is not required to continue coverage of his rehab and therapy. Moving forward, everything will be self paid out of pocket. 

Gary and Sheryl have been very involved in the Lancaster Ohio community for many years through their church, the Lancaster High School Marching band, and the family business, Gary's Service Center which has been serving the community since 1996. 

The funds we raise will be used to help pay the medical bills and his continuing daily therapy. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much to everyone and please keep Gary in your thoughts and prayers even if you can't donate. We love you all!
