“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.”
– Kenji Miyazawa
Johnny is a vibrant 13 year old that was diagnosed in late 2020 with an extremely aggressive form of bone cancer, Osteosarcoma. After a year of chemotherapy and surgery to save his left leg, he was declared cancer free. Unfortunately at a routine scan, we found out that the cancer had metastasized to his lungs. Johnny then endured two thoracotomies, and was enrolled in a clinical trial. After two rounds of the trial, the Kinney family was dealt another unimaginable blow. The cancer had returned quickly and aggressively. He is currently trying a daily chemotherapy drug. We are praying for no heavy side effects, and that it will slow down the growth of the masses and give us more time with him.
I created this GoFundMe campaign to help the Kinney family with whatever they need during this most difficult time. Please check back often as I will continue to update when new information becomes available. Thank you to everyone that’s contributed to our GoFundMe. Gayle, John, Johnny and Maddie are forever grateful.
